I am a healer (Reiki Master), as well as a 23-year attorney with a passion for helping others with disputes.  I understand the toll a legal issue can take on an individual and their family or business.  I have extensive experience with many types of litigation and pre-litigation cases, and I approach each legal issue from a heart-centered space of "how can I help this person/business" rather than "how much can I make off of this matter?"  If I cannot adequately handle an issue or case, I will happily refer those needing representation/advice to one of the many attorneys I know in the area who may be able to assist.  My sincerest desire is to get those in need of legal advice the help they need, whether it is with my firm or not.
