I’ve been involved in some really big cases, and some small ones too. No matter the size of the case, it’s important that I can help my clients solve whatever problem they’re facing. I really care about my clients and am passionate about providing them with the best representation possible. It's a great honor, of course, when a client becomes a friend, but more importantly, it helps me be a better lawyer.
