Areas of Practice:
“Many will say that disputes and litigation are simply a cost of doing business. If so, our job is to find creative ways to either avoid that cost altogether or to make sure that the disputes don’t cost you your business.”
“Lawfully conducting the business of the people is a hard, thankless job. My role is to provide the local government leaders with current law upon which to base their decisions and 30-plus years' worth of insight as to what is likely to succeed and what isn’t.”
“Benjamin Franklin said nothing was certain in life but death and taxes. Our job is to help guide you through life’s certainties as efficiently as possible.”
