I have been practitcing law since 1981, first as a tax attorney with Chevron, then in my own practice since 1990. I enjoy the challenge of resolving the tax and financial issues each client presents and seek to get them the best settlement based on a fair analysis of both the facts and law affecting the situation. I like to help people move their lives into the future.
I often see solutions where others see only questions.
We are known as a detail oriented firm that requires an accurate, complete and full disclosure from both parties as a basis for a fair settlement. I have developed unique materials to help my clients understand the law and explain their situation to their advantage
The TR6 was to be the tow car for my racing Spitfire, but the towbar was stolen and the trailer was too heavy for it anyway. Still all original....50,000 miles.
