About Me

I treat my clients like my own family.  My wife is a first generation immigrant from Ethiopia, and so I understand the needs of immigrant families first hand.  I treat every case as if it were my own family's case, and give every client individual and personal attention. 


 


Acessibilty and comunication are the most important part of your relationship with your attorney, and I strive to give every client the attention they deserve and request.


 


We use MyCase (www.mycaseinc.com) so that you our client can see in real-time 24 hours per day the latest updates on your case.  You will see your schedule, attorney and firm notes, documents, and secure encrypted communication from our firm to you.  This is a state of the art system, and we bring it to you as part of our focus on excellent service.


 


I know you will find our staff friendly and helpful, and we look forward to getting to know you and working with you.
