About me

I am a persistent attorney who listens to his clients.  I was a corporate lawyer for 20 years before starting my own firm.  I have handled federal, state, and municipal cases and drafted and negotiated over 5000 contracts including technology contracts (e.g. software license agreements), consulting services agreements, event agreements, construction agreements, independent contractor agreements, and recruiter agreements.


 


I work hard explain the law to my clients clearly and concisely, be responsive to them, keep them informed, and understand their needs and goals.  I try to put myself in my client's shoes and understand how I would feel if I were them.  My job and my commitment is to protect my clients, and I take this obligation very seriously.
