About me

For 20 years, I have fought for professionals and business owners, listening with compassion, being straightforward and honest with our clients.  My professional clients face a system that can be cold, impersonal, uncaring and harsh.  We act as skilled and knowledgeable guides through that system.  We strive to educate and inform clients, to minimize case weaknesses and maximize strengths, in order to achieve the best results while mindful of a client's budget and appetite for risk.
