About Me

I enjoy being an attorney specifically for the feeling that comes in successfully helping my clients with their needs. Some attorneys like to keep their clients at arm's length, but that's not how I like to practice law. I prefer being the number my client's call when they have an emergency and don't know where else to turn. Whether it's because they've been arrested, have had their spouses take their children away, or have a problem with their businesses. I've been told more than once by clients that they feel better having my phone number with them at all times.
