How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I chose trial practice because I enjoy the art of advocacy and the excitement of trial.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Clients who are well informed on legal issues help both themselves and their lawyers in accomplishing their goals.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am happy to review documents clients have prepared; it often saves money and time and improves the final result.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I commonly advise clients who intend to represent themselves on various matters. I often recommend that they do so in the right cases, but also tell them when I think they need a lawyer to represent them.

Every work experience, education and life experience makes someone a better lawyer.

While I think that my strengths would be better described by others, I believe that I am approachable, thorough and diligent.
