To be an effective litigator, it is imperative to not only have a complete understanding of the facts and law that apply to a case, but you must also have the ability to connect and communicate with others. I take a great deal of pride and enjoyment in conducting thorough and detailed investigations for my clients, and when necessary, advocating for their interests to work towards the best possible outcome in each case.
