I enjoy my practice because I find helping clients meet a need they cannot meet for themselves very gratifying. My clients appreciate that I take the time to truly get to know them and understand their businesses’ respective concerns, priorities, and motivators. My favorite part of my job is digesting opposing counsel’s arguments and presenting a compelling, effective counter argument to further my clients’ interests.
