About Me

I am a business lawyer whose practice is limited strictly to transactional work.  What does that mean?  It means I am not a litigator and that I work hard to keep my clients out of court by avoiding problems before they happen.  When litigation becomes inevitable, I work with litigation attorneys in my office to make sure my clients receive vigorous, cost effective representation.
