About me

You know the old saying "You can't fight city hall," well I say you can, if you hire the right lawyers.

My practice is focused on helping clients who are trying to "fight city hall", so to speak.  I represent clients before every level of government on virtually every type of issue - whether it be a land use matter, special education dispute, business issue with the government, or any other type of civil proceeding.

The other half of my practice is focused on helping clients prepare for the future to avoid costly litigation.  I like to remind my clients that an "ounce of prevention" (i.e. hiring an attorney to make sure a contract is drafted correctly) is always worth a pound of cure (i.e. hiring an attorney to litigate a dispute centered around a poorly written contract).  In addition to business law, I also assist clients with tax issues and estate planning as well.

Please give me a call and allow me the chance to earn your trust, and your business.
