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

I chose my area of primary practice because I have, and still do, make a difference.

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

I feel that it is fine for a client to educate themselves on legal issues; however there is no substitute for an attorney's expertise and experience in analyzing complex legal issues and case law.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am willing to review documents prepared by clients so long as they are not legal in nature.

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

I am unwilling to coach a client who wishes to represent themselves.
