About me

The promise I make to all my clients is that I will provide the best advice I can to you, in a manner that makes sense for your current wants and needs.  You should not leave any attorney without a clear sense of what you need to do and WHY you need to do it.  My office and staff treat all clients with the respect they deserve and no one is ever judged, regardless of their situation. Whether you are a small, to medium business with muli-million dollar deals that need to be negotiated, or a consumer with thousands of dollars of debt, we will provide the same level of care and attention to your case.
