About me

After almost 10 years working in the "Big Firm" environment, I chose to open my own office where I can provide personal service to my clients without having to pay for the "big firm" overhead costs.  I can be flexible to meet with clients when they need to meet, and I will be the one answering the telephone most of the time.
