I've been around the legal profession my entire life, being the son of an attorney, and grandson of a Judge.  I believe that everyone deserves good legal representation, and as such, I try to work my cases as if I were the client. 


Philosophically, I think most cases are not black and white, but rather shades of gray, and that often the role of the attorney is to shade that gray toward the direction of the client's interests. 


In my free time, I enjoy pretty much all sports, music, and cooking.
