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

This area of practice is often complicated. But clients tell me that I make complication clear and that I understand their goals.

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

Well informed prospective clients are able to make sound judgments and better evaluate their true options.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

These are useful in helping to refine client thinking, but often lack coordination with tax laws.

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

Not applicable.

Rawle & Henderson, Associate
District Attorney's Office

I have been educated since law school as a trust and estate lawyer but my litigation experience and experience as a speaker and mediator help me to help clients to avoid problems in advance.

I really listen to and implement what the client wants but I can also offer clear alternatives they might not be aware of.

Personal interests:

Speaking, writing, teaching, travel, philanthropy.
