Most people have heard the saying that dogs are like their owners. I am often told I am the prime example of that saying. The pit bull is a dog of power, passion, and undying willingness. Those who have met me describe me in much the same way. Like my pit bulls, I am intelligent and tenacious. I pride myself in pursing what I need for my clients and I will not stop until I succeed. This makes me an extremely powerful contender in the courtroom.
