Practice Areas

I'm a firm believer in building lasting relationships both personally and professionally. I've had an excellent opportunity to have both while working with OKH&C. Our relationship with OKH&C was established several years before I assumed the role as State Claims Manager. I can assure you this relationship has only become stronger over the years. The professionalism, accountability, customer service and integrity of this firm is admirable. I look forward to continuing our relationship for years to come.
