I look at a problem from all angles, keeping in mind both the long-term and short-term results. Placing myself in my client’s shoes provides a unique insight and allows me to anticipate their needs and expectations. Before I step into the courtroom, a mediation, or begin a brief, every issue will be researched and opposing arguments anticipated. Preparation is the key to a successful outcome.
