About me

I work very hard for my clients.  I do NOT treat the practice of law as just another business.  I truly believe in the practice of law as an honorable and learned profession. That may sound old-fashioned in a cynical era, but I feel that representing my clients is an honor.  They put their trust in me, and because they do, it is my obligation to do my level best for them.  So I do. 

I am selective about the clients I represent.  My practice is extremely busy, but that is not the main reason I am selective.  Rather, I want to maintain a reputation with my colleagues in the profession such that, when I put my name on a client's case, they know my client is serious and her/his position is very legitimate.   

So, if you truly have been wronged, or if you genuinely need help to make a bad situation better, then I am your guy.  But if you want to pursue a frivolous case, cheat, engage in games, or just jerk the other side around, then find someone else.  There may be people willing to help you do such things to make money, but I am not one of them. 

On the other hand, if you are serious, and you want to be represented by someone who tries his best to deliver the best possible result for you, then I'd be honored to represent you.
