ViewpointV2My Viewpoint
Today’s environment can be very challenging for our clients. The ever-changing technology requires everything to move incredibly quickly, which can cause difficulty. You have to be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and understand how to address the complexity of each case.


WhyV2Why I Do It
Nothing makes me happier than doing a good job for our clients. I take representing their best interest very seriously. From an early age, I was drawn to being an attorney because I have a vested interest in doing the right thing.

Becoming a father taught me the importance of responsibility and hard work. I pass those ideals on to our younger attorneys and staff and make sure I live by those tenets every day.
