How I Serve Clients
I’m committed to our community, having lived in Clark County and worked in Southern Indiana for more than 40 years. Prior to attending law school, I was a real estate broker and started a local restaurant that thrived for over 40 years. I also worked at a local bank in both the loan and trust departments. I understand the needs of individuals and small business owners in our community and strive to develop solutions to their matters that can be achieved expeditiously.
When clients are experiencing a difficult matter, such as a divorce, custody dispute, or a probate matter, I am by their side to provide the emotional support needed. When business owners need help with contracts or other matters, as a business owner myself, I can appreciate the objectives they seek.
No legal matter is “too small” for the client experiencing the problem. Nor is there any “small” legal matter for me. I give attention and detail to every client’s matter as if it were my own case and recognize how such resolution might affect the client, their family, and the community.
