Personal Statement

My goal has always been to ensure that my clients receive the best possible representation and achieve the best possible outcomes. Every client's case is treated with care, compassion and attention because I know how important each client's case is to them. I stay involved in each client’s case and won’t pass you on to a paralegal or legal assistant once you have become my client. I make sure that I am personally available to address each of my client’s concerns and questions, and I strive to regularly keep my clients informed about their case. I believe that effective and aggressive representation, plus an informed client, invariably lead to the best results.
