About me

I have had success applying an "outside-of-the-box" approach to complex legal problems.  In one recent example of this, my firm and I were able to successfully survive a statute of limitations motion to dismiss on grounds that our plaintiff client's claims accrued some fifteen years prior to the time he filed suit.  The key was a creative approach to interpreting governing trust language.


 


In addition, I strive always to show courtesy, kindness, compassion and professionalism to my clients.  I return calls and emails promptly.

    Stefan is a very strategic, thoughtful and experienced litigator. Whether prosecuting or defending a case, he will think through the case strategy far in advance to put his client in the best possible position. I would not hesitate to recommend him on any litigation, appeal or bankruptcy matter.
