How I Help Clients
I take great pride in being able to personally serve people and their businesses on a wide range of legal matters. I enjoy the one-to-one relationships that develop in providing legal representation, and clients appreciate that I will be handling their matter directly. I also work hard to be a calming influence for clients in matters that can be highly emotional, such as divorce and other family law matters.
In addition to seeking sound legal advice, clients want a lawyer who they can reach quickly, and who will take the time to explain the legalities of the matter and answer their questions, in addition to working hard to develop solutions to their problems. My clients know that when they need me, I am only a phone call away.
