About me

I enjoy getting to know my clients and learning about their needs and objectives.  My emphasis is on efficient, practical solutions.  Whenever possible, I provide a free initial consultation, and then an estimated range of my anticipated fees for specific legal projects.  I am one of 2 partners in the firm, and altogether we have 7 attorneys.  We are a small but stable firm, and have been at the same address for over 36 years.


Outside of the office, my wife and I enjoy spending time with our young son.  We also enjoy sailing, biking, golf, snow sports, and many other activities.
