In 1993, I represented the victim of a bus accident who was severely brain damaged. From that point on, there was no other area of law that I wanted to practice.
An informed, educated client is an ideal client. I keep clients informed by sending them copies of all letters, motions, pleadings and discovery responses.
I am always willing to review legal documents prepared by clients if they want to proceed pro se in a law suit.
I am willing to give advice to clients who represent themselves, but the best advice for such clients is to retain a lawyer.
