Business and personal philosophy
I have always maintained it is better to provide quality individualized service to my established clientele rather than strive only for quantity in customer base. It would go against my personal ethics to not spend the hours of research, thoughtful consideration and physical effort it takes to customize and design the best, most beneficial legal package for every person who depends upon me to serve in their best interest.
There is no such thing as boilerplate in my practice. This means I take seriously my role as fiduciary in representing a client and/or their family. In my opinion, the association between attorney and client is meant to be a life-long relationship. I make sure I keep abreast of laws, regulations and public policy as they adjust to the present and impact the future. I believe I can say with confidence I have earned my reputation among peers, clients, friends and family as fair and honest and a person they can depend upon and trust.
