About Me

“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.
