for mY clients, a lawyer needs to be more than just a lawyer.

I know you want to work with a lawyer who cares and is accessible, regardless of your size, who can get things done, help you make good decisions and who does it for a reasonable cost. 

My client relationships are rarely transactional. I try to get as deeply involved with my clients as I can, to be a part of the team, for the long term.

Who are some
of my clients?
