About Me

I am the Founder and Managing Member of The Xenos Law Firm, PLC.  My fees and expenses are significantly lower than those charged by
other attorneys who do similar work, because my operations do away with
multi-tiered staffing and high overhead that burden traditional law
firms.  I enjoy close referral relationships with accountants,
appraisers, valuation experts, investigators, and other professionals in
many fields, whom I call upon as needed to meet the specialized needs
of my clients.

Unlike large law firms where work often funnels down to
inexperienced associates, I am personally
involved in every client matter. This means that regardless of
the complexity, you will benefit from my legal experience and fine judgment

I prefer
not to bill by the hour.  I am usually compensated for my
services by flat fee, contingency fee, or other fee arrangement that
ensures cost containment and predictability for my clients.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling and photography.  Check out my photos from Africa and my photos from Alaska.
