About me

I am a compassionate, tiresome advocate for my clients.  I enjoy working with them to devise creative and realistic solutions to better serve their needs.  One of my greatest strengths is being available for my clients to discuss not only the law and legal procedure, but candid, evolving assessments of the strengths and weaknesses of their cases.  I am very much a hands on attorney who likes frequent contact with clients.
