I am in the business of resolving problems.

Litigation is never the end goal for me. It is one of many means to the same objective, which is to face clients’ problems, be creative in solving them, and move on without games or rancor. My clients have an advocate who will efficiently guide them through the legal process while ensuring their interests are protected.
