“Representing injured victims is a personal mission for me. When I was 9 years old, my father was involved in a workplace accident and almost lost his leg. As a result, he spent a year in the intensive care unit. My father was not a litigious person nor did he come from a culture which embraced litigation. Yet, he took a leap of faith and hired an injury attorney to fight for him. Three years later, he was awarded a large monetary settlement. The settlement changed our lives. Our family purchased a home and were able to save towards our future. I am thankful for the personal injury lawyers who fought so hard for my father. Decades later, the only thing he recalls about them now is that they treated him with kindness. I am committed to fighting aggressively for my clients and ensuring that they are treated with kindness and afforded the dignity they deserve.”
