About me

Law is a second career for me.  My background is in sales, primarily high tech. My experience in negotiations has served me well as a lawyer, and the ability to make a convincing and concise sales pitch works just as well with Judges as it used to with customers! My previous career also gives me insight and real world experience with small business that is a major advantage for my clients.
