Experience & Promise

When you hire me to be your attorney, you get much more than an attorney - you get a person who has passionately ridden his bike six or seven days a week for the past 25 years. You get a person who has successfully handled hundreds of cycling cases for more than 25 years. You get a person who has advocated for bicyclists through service on governmental committees and national/local organizations that promote cycling. You get a person who has spent his vacation time visiting and riding the courses of the Tour De France. You get someone who chooses to commute to his law office by bike. You get a lawyer who cares about you and understands you.
