Why Me?

  • ACCESSIBILITY: No matter how small your matter may be, I am here to listen. I’m available to discuss your case via phone, fax, or web and happy to meet in person. Our first consultation is always free of charge, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
  • LOYALTY: Because I’m devoted to fostering a positive relationship with my clients, you can be sure that I am always trustworthy, dedicated, and discreet. My commitment is to addressing your concerns and resolving your case. Count on me.
  • CREATIVITY: Remember that space-race-era joke about Americans and Soviets competing to create a writing utensil that would work in zero gravity? The Americans spent millions of dollars developing a pen that could handle such extreme conditions--and the Russians, faced with the same issue, thought to use a pencil. Just like those Russian scientists, I search for simple, elegant, and sometimes unexpected solutions.
  • COMPETENCY: My qualifications and experience are my greatest strengths as a lawyer. Educated in the U.S. and abroad, I have worked with some of the best legal authorities in the world. While I handle deadlines and details, you can relax knowing that you’re in expert hands.
  • CONFIDENTIALITY: I’ve handled a wide range of confidential material and treat my clients with respect and discretion. Consider me both a lawyer and a confidante. Even my wife won’t know about your case!
