I was formerly a partner at Lempres & Wulfsberg in Oakland, California.
Participating in hundreds of mediations has helped me understand the anatomy of a dispute, and how to deal with psychological and cultural issues that have little to do with legal principles, but often lie at the heart of the misunderstanding.
Preparation is the heart and soul of any good lawyer. I am always prepared. I develop innovative ways to resolve disputes. I treat my client's pocketbook like it is my own.
I speak plainly, honestly, and directly about legal issues. I give clients options about how they want to approach their case. I look for fair and reasonable outcomes. I write contracts that are balanced. I help clients avoid legal problems with proactive advice and good contract documents.
I enjoy sailing, jazz guitar, skiing, golf, scuba diving, and wine tasting.
