I began practicing law in Tucson in 1979. From 1980 to 2007 I was a member and shareholder in the law firm of Slutes, Sakrison and Hill, PC. In August, 2007 I left that firm and opened my own practice to fulfill my personal ambitions. My office is located in the Steinfeld Mansion which is just a short walk to all State and Federal courthouses. You will find easy parking and a welcoming environment. The technology in my firm is up to date and my staff professional.
My practice focuses on civil litigation. It is my belief that in this area of the law nothing substitutes for experience, hard work, exhaustive preparation and attention to detail. I take great pride in the professional skills I have cultivated during my career. My clients are of the utmost importance to me.
I am licensed to practice in all state and federal courts in Arizona and have appeared on behalf of clients in courts in each county of the state.
Since 1992 I have been certified by the State Bar of Arizona as a specialist in the area of personal injury and wrongful death. This designation reflects a demonstrated superior knowledge, skill, integrity, professionalism and high degree of competence in the area of personal injury and wrongful death.
I also have a Martindale-Hubbell "AV Preeminent" rating. The Martindale-Hubbell company was founded in 1868 and provides background information on lawyers and law firms in the United States. This particular rating is the highest possible for an attorney for both ethical standards and legal ability and is achieved only after an attorney has been reviewed and recommended by their peers - those being other members of the bar and judiciary.
In my 32 years of practice I have handled hundreds of claims arising from motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice and other types of accidents, and tried over 70 cases to jury verdict with a favorable outcome to my client 90% of the time.
