I am proud to be a part of the excellent team of trial attorneys at Cellino & Barnes.  I have represented injured persons since my admission to practice law in 1988 and have derived great satisfaction helping people in their time of need.  I relish the opportunity to zealously represent my clients whose lives have been adversely affected by the carelessness of others.

I have prosecuted cases against some of the country's biggest companies and insurance carriers.  I appreciate my role as my clients' champion when they face a "David versus Goliath" confrontation in their personal injury claim. 

I have found that success is dependent on 1) a focused, positive attitude, 2) disciplined preparation and 3) the relentless pursuit of the desired goal.  I approach the practice of law with these principles in mind.
