About Me

I am an attorney who is concerned that service in the legal industry is almost gone.  To help bring service back, one client at a time, I am not only willing to do housecalls, I ENCOURAGE THEM!  My office does not bill for every minute that may be considered billable to keep my client's legal bills down to a more affordable level.  I am willing to make retainer payment arrangement and am very flexible.  Does this mean that I get taken advantage of by some clients?  Absolutely.  However, I did not become an attorney to become rich.  My decision was more about enjoying what I do and helping others.
