Know Your Options

I have 20 years of litigation experience. So, I know how critical it is to discuss all your options and choose the right strategy.  I work with clients to find ways to resolve disputes amicably, with as little cost and disruption as possible.  Sometimes that means informal negotiations, mediation, or arbitration.

Move Forward With Authority

But when litigation becomes necessary, I represent my clients with commitment and passion. I have prosecuted claims for individuals and businesses in state and federal courts, and in arbitration. I have also defended various challenges to corporate and individual conduct.

Growth and Transition

I work with new and established businesses on their non-litigation goals as well.  Sometimes that includes corporate formation and organization.  Often that leads to company growth and an array of contracts.

In addition, I help executives and high-level employees understand important career choices.  I guide them through non-compete clauses and other restrictive covenants.  I review separation agreements and litigation releases with them.  If you are separating from an employer, or exploring a new career opportunity, I want to help you protect your rights and your future.

Changing Perceptions

I love being a lawyer and I love changing a clients’ perception of what it’s like to work with a lawyer. I thrive on creating a uniquely positive and enjoyable client/lawyer relationship. By understanding our clients’ passions, ambitions, and the issues that keep them up at night, I’m able to help them achieve their goals in a way that is custom-fit for them.

Sounding Board

I often serve as a sounding board for our clients. While our clients know their situation better than anyone, together we make a great team – we will find the best possible approach to achieve the desired goals. Then, we make it happen in the most efficient way possible. To do this, I employ legal expertise, creativity, logic, tact, and persuasion.

For our business clients, we help with legal and strategic matters that arise during all phases of the business lifecycle, from startup, growth and expansion, through exit strategies.
