In my everyday practice, I strive to work closely with my clients to understand all aspects of their businesses, ranging from their core values, to their goals, and the people that help them meet those goals. This understanding aids my search for cost and time efficient solutions to legal disputes that allow clients to move forward and reach their goals.
