About Me

I am an attorney and counselor at law. The tag phrase for my firm is "A fresh approach to a venerable profession." Essentially, that means the the law is a profession and not a business!  Clients' interests should be and are, at my firm, placed ahead of the firm's own interests.

    I endorse this lawyer. We shared a client on a particularly delicate and unique business/real estate matter and he performed admirably. My client was more than satisfied with his services. Since then I have referred several matters, mostly business litigation, and have heard nothing but praise.
