What differentiates me from other lawyers?

First of all, there are many lawyers who I have worked with, and I have a lot of respect for their abilities, talent, and professionalism. 

If I had to pinpoint what differentiates me, it would come down to my background and personal story and, ultimately, what drives me to do my work every day. 

I had a challenging upbringing, which led me to deal with difficult situations growing up. 

This experience made me who I am today and helped me deeply understand people’s pain, suffering, and feeling of things being unfair. I chose to become a lawyer so I can fight for justice for my clients and help them receive the best outcome and, in personal injury cases, the best payout, which is rightfully theirs. 

I know that going through these difficult situations, my clients benefit from the aggressive and non-compromising defense of their rights, as well as feeling understood, supported, and have in their corner someone who has a genuine appreciation of the place they are at.
