I am fortunate to have long-lasting relationships with many of our clients. That is generally impossible without being responsive to their needs and – most important – obtaining successful results. I enjoy handling tough cases, but I also know that costly discovery and courtroom battles are often not the most effective nor efficient options. That is why I explore unique and creative alternatives focused on achieving results that match the client’s needs.
