“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.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
