About me

Personal Philosophy

Life's too short to waste ...I encourage clients to focus on what matters most.

I take your case-situation very seriously.....and, I also know that clients sometimes get caught up in an emotional spiral of revenge and defensiveness and forget the bottom line.....resolving the matter so they can move on with what matters most in their lives.

As a lawyer, counselor, provider, family man, grandpa and outdoor adventurist, I've witnessed much pain and suffering caused by lack of focus and failure to remember the personal core values that drive our lives on this earth.....especially during trying times.

I work hard and play hard. I live my core values everyday (integrity, creativity, freedom, humor and compassion) and as a result have developed compassion for and understanding of my clients and the range of other personalities involved in complex and simple legal situations.I look for win-win resolutions. This means doing the best I can to match available resources with innovative solutions. Most of my cases-situations are resolved out of court, saving all parties time, emotional turmoil and money. Business transactions are dealt with timely and cost effectively, focusing on getting the best deal possible for my clients.

I pride myself on being efficient and effective, keeping up-to-date on technologies that will help me run my practice and building positive relationships with those I do business with (community, opposing counsel, judges, etc.). I answer my own phones, I get back to you, I care about your legal matter.
