My goal is to help our clients' operations run more smoothly through creative problem solving. Sometimes that means providing more than just a legal solution to a problem, sometimes it means offering additional insight to help them make the best decision for their business.
Educating my clients is a top priority. It is my duty as an attorney to provide insight not only on the law and how it applies to a specific case, but also on the various settlement options available, including mediation, collaborative, and other alternative dispute resolution processes.
As part of my practice, I represent health care providers who have dedicated their lives to caring for people in their time of need. My number one goal is to be that person in their corner who will fight for them and provide that same level of dedication in their legal representation.
The law is dynamic and always evolving. As lawyers, it’s our job to stay current on the laws that impact our clients’ businesses and develop legal strategies consistent with their business philosophies and goals.
Our clients’ interests and imagination truly inspire a sense of teamwork that is both motivating and highly successful in solving litigation problems.
