My practice primarily involves litigation. As a result, I work with clients on a daily basis who are either being sued or who are bringing a claim. I appreciate the need of our clients to fully understand the range of possible outcomes and what it’s going to cost to get to the end of the case. They want to be fairly warned about what may lie ahead, what their options are and what are the worst and best case scenarios. I work hard to give our clients an honest overview, handle their cases cost-effectively, and deliver intended outcomes.
