I begin each case by discussing the likelihood of outcomes based on the facts, the law, and the judicial landscape. I don’t pull punches or waste time, and my team and I don’t make big decisions unless and until those decisions have been completely vetted with the clients. I strive to make litigation and business go hand in hand in strategic planning, and I’m available when our clients need answers or have questions or concerns. I’ve tried cases to judges and juries in courts of limited jurisdiction and the highest appellate courts in both the state and federal systems, and having that experience along with a professional demeanor sets me apart from others.
