I take pride in my decades long client relationships. This longevity is created by loyalty and top tier service to the client. In exchange I receive loyalty from clients because they know many excellent lawyers, but none will care about their matters as much as I do. I approach practicing law the way I played sports, inspired by teamwork and collaboration, with a willingness to build consensus, lead and succeed. Practicing law frequently ends in intangible results. But it’s the moments of tangible success that I especially enjoy, whether that is seeing a new business created or another business sold after years of investment, planning and execution.
