Philosophy of Practice:
“My clients deserve to get results. I provide direct and concise service, and my clients feel confident that they have chosen an honest, forthright attorney who puts their needs at the forefront while planning for risk avoidance.
I am efficient, I cut to the core issues, and I avoid gamesmanship. Depositions are the most efficient device available to expose the strengths and weaknesses applicable to both sides, and can be a vital tool in prompting resolution and settlement outside of court.”
