    A family doctor addresses your basic medical issues and acts as a gatekeeper to specialists. I provide similar advice and counsel to businesses in all sectors of the economy. Basic questions and guidance are provided as needed and I also address the complex questions involving litigation, employment and workers' compensation law. If specialized knowledge is needed on a complex legal issue I can’t address, I facilitate the introduction to my partner(s) who can provide that knowledge.
