About Me

I have been practicing law for nearly three decades.  I am passionate about assisting my clients with their legal problems.  By using equal measures of knowledge, strategy, and common sense, I accomplish my clients' objectives through diligent and proactive lawyering.  I strive to represent clients efficiently and effectively, involving them throughout the process, as typically a well-informed client who understands the legal process and the law applicable to their case or business matter, is integral to the selection of a successful strategy.
