Every client I have the privilege of representing has a unique case with a specific set of circumstances. I approach our work together by taking immediate charge of the case in a results-driven way with consistency, dependability and a focused, proven strategy. I handle myself well with others, especially during adverse and contentious circumstances – a skill set not everyone possesses. The valuable lessons I learned during my professional baseball career are parlayed into the professional arena of my law practice. I know innately what it takes to win. I work the case harder and am always prepared. I am responsible, reasonable and care for my clients’ welfare. Most importantly, my clients need to make their decisions with the understanding that I have listened to their concerns, put my interests aside, and that I really want them to make the best decision for themselves.
