Client Service

I serve clients as both counselor and advocate. My role as counselor includes careful listening, evaluating issues, presenting options, explaining the law, and guiding decisions. As advocate, I promote my client’s position and zealously fight to serve their best interests based on the facts, circumstances and law as every case is different and should be evaluated on its own merits. I effectively serve clients as their counselor and advocate by being open and honest, direct and assured, detailed and decisive, reasonable and practical, and responsive and reliable. Those who know me know that my word means something and I do what I say I am going to do.
