My Philosophy

For me, the practice of law is inherently tied to communicating and interacting with others. Whether it be opposing counsel, a judge, or even my own clients, the nature of my communications with others is extremely important towards setting the posture of each case. Often times, simply listening is the best communication.

Although I will not try every case, I approach each one as if it will be my next trial. To me, knowing that I have left no stone unturned gives me the satisfaction that I have provided my clients the representation they expect and deserve. That is why I enjoy litigating cases.
