In nearly two decades of practice, the greatest satisfaction I get is knowing that I have assisted another person through some difficult time in their life. A downside of my practice is meeting somebody who is in real trouble in his or her family or the law. After an initial conversation with my clients, I see that they get a sense of relief knowing that somebody is here to assist.

In addition to assisting clients, I do enjoy the part of my job that requires strategic decision making, whether through a quick response in open court, or through a careful review of the law in my office. I make these decisions with the sole purpose of trying to better my client’s situation.
