Kootenai County Car Accident Lawyer

I seek justice and compensation for people who were injured due to the negligence of others. I handle a broad range of personal injury claims, including those involving motor vehicle accidents, nursing home neglect, wrongful death and government liability. I take a meticulous approach to these cases as I pursue all available compensation for the damages my clients have suffered.

For more than 16 years, my practice consisted of representing insurance companies in personal injury litigation. As a result, I know how insurance adjusters and insurance attorneys think and evaluate cases.
