I am passionate about building meaningful relationships with my clients. I try to take a holistic approach to litigation, and not just look for the solution to the issue at hand. Working in the financial services arena allows me to work with sophisticated clients who appreciate and look for the larger problems, and I enjoy helping those clients work towards managing their overall risks while improving the value they provide their own customers.
