About me

As an attorney, I pride myself on the personal service I give my clients.  For instance, I work on all of my mortgage modificaton files myself.  I meet with my clients myself, I communicate with them directly via phone or email, I prepare the documents that go to the lender and I communicate with the lender and their attorneys.  I do not give the file off to a secretary or paralegal.
