I will be there for you!
I became a lawyer because I believe in justice. I help my clients attain justice by educating them about the law, offering support and guidance and providing zealous representation. My office provides client centered representation. As my client, you will have prompt and helpful responses to all telephone calls and emails. You will be able to meet with me at times which accommodate your schedule.
Not all cases require expensive litigation, but when they do, I am an experienced and skilled trial advocate. It is often a better result when clients are able to attain a negotiated settlement. I am trained in and am able to offer alternative dispute resolution services such as mediation, conciliation and collaborative law. Whatever type of representation you will need, "I will be there for you!" Contact me to ask more about my services!
