About Me

Your legal issue(s) is/are can be very stressful.  This is why I try to maintain a positive, working relationship with my clients and why I give out my personal cell phone number so that I can be reached more easily.  I consider myself unique in this regard and in my personal, hands-on treatment of your case.  I schedule my own appointments and discuss all aspects of your case with you personally.  I do not simply hand your case to an associate and rarely deal with you.  

Nothwithstanding the foregoing, I do have a personal life and enjoy time with my family outside of the working environment.  This allows me to rejuveniate and focus my energies and talents on your case.
