About Ethan

Learn Ethan’s areas of practice.

I believe in the jury system and right of every individual and company to have their day in court.  After representing thousands of different clients in different matters, the chance to try your case to a jury of your peers is a precious right.  This philosphy has guided my representation of clients since I began practicing law.
