The counseling side of my practice is what my clients value most. In my experience, listening carefully to my client’s concerns so we can craft the most creative and practical solution always leads to the best results, and minimizes future conflict and the need to litigate later. Clients can count on me to find a solution that can make their lives easier during difficult times and to simplify complex issues so they can make effective decisions.
