I am a proud husband and father who enjoys travel, cooking and games of all kinds. I take my responsibilities as an attorney very seriously; I take my responsibilities as a father and husband equally seriously. No lawyer should avoid drawing on his or her personal experiences when representing a client, and the more substantial and fulfilling a lawyer's personal life, the more benifit he or she can bring to his client from his own life experience. As such, I work hard to balance those two aspects of my life in a way that maxamizes the benifits I recieve from both.
As for my professional philosophy, I started this practice with the idea that people need attorneys
in the same way they need doctors. Most of the time people are best
served by "their lawyer", who knows their history, sees many people
situated similarly to them, and has a broad understanding of the law.
Generally, people know when something is wrong, and know that they want
it fixed, but in law, like in medicine, most people don't know the best
way to fix the problem, or if they do, they understand that their legal
health is too important not to engage the help of a professional. As
such, it is my belief that, based on his personal familiarity with the
client from representing the client's past legal needs, a general
practitioner is highly effective at diagnosing the legal ailments of an
average client, and developing a plan for treatment and long-term care.
It is with this philosophy and these personal tools that I assist and
advise my clients, whether they need a health-care directive drafted,
received a speeding ticket, are dealing with a child-support issue, or
have been gravely injured due to the negligence of another.
