About Me

My primary professional goal is to never forget the needs of my clients. Too often attorneys focus on the case, rather than the client. Although I have a passion for litigation, my greater passion is to serve my client well. Being creative, finding the resolution to the problem that escapes others, understanding the culture of my client and what they deem important enables me to distinuish my services from others
