My clients are facing significant risks. They need a lawyer who knows what she’s doing and can resolve cases quickly. When clients come to me with a claim to defend, I'm very aggressive up front. First, I’ll work with the general counsel and risk manager to determine if an early resolution is their best option. If not, we'll lay out a strategy to defend the claim to prevail in court.
