Clients consider me easy to deal with, efficient, and effective. I’m not the person who’s going to come in and shift weight around. With litigation clients, I aim to get a case resolved as quickly as possible. I’m a strong advocate always, but I look for the most realistic, expedient path to get my client to their goal.
