Client Service

My approach to effective client representation can be summed up in three words: aggressive, detailed, and realistic.

I believe that clients deserve an aggressive approach to evaluating every defense option, acquired through a detailed review of all relevant facts and law, and tempered with a realistic forecast of the likely outcome.
