“Draw your chair up close to the edge of the precipice and I’ll tell you a story.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald
The place where your business or your life meets the legal system is a cliff.
To not fall off the cliff requires two things.
Trust. And, someone to tell your story.
Trust between lawyer and client. And a narrative that persuades, whatever the audience—judge or jury, prosecutor or regulator, adversary or ally.
I base my practice first on trust, then on persuasion.
