Client Expectations:

  • Clear Explanations. I take the time that others don’t to explain every aspect of your case so you know what to expect.
  • Answers to Your Questions. Some lawyers will not take a stance or answer the difficult questions you may have related to your case. We do.
  • Sincere Empathy and Understanding. I truly care about my clients.  It’s not just a job for me.  I really want to help people and try to treat each client as if they were family.
  • Thorough Investigation. I will leave no rock unturned in conducting an investigation into your legal issue.
  • Reasonable Attorney’s Fees. Our fees are competitive with many of our less-experienced opponents.
