Responsive. Knowledgeable. Results.

Mission Statement

I work closely with my clients so that they understand and appreciate the joint effort needed to successfully achieve their goals and meet their objectives. I keep my clients informed, respond to my clients’ input and respect my clients by promptly returning calls, texts and e-mails. I am friendly, caring and act in a professional and courteous manner. In pursuing justice for my clients, I always strive to achieve results that exceed expectations.

Clients often complain that they can’t reach their attorney, and when they do get through, they are often referred to a paralegal or secretary.  I am committed to remaining accessible to my clients and ensuring that they are well-informed about every step of the process. I pamper my clients by remaining available and constantly alert and in touch with their needs.

“It’s very important to be responsive. I’m not only responsive, I’m available.  I spoil my clients.  They have my cell, office and email.  If I can’t get back with a client right away, I send a short note.  If I tell a client I’m going to meet a deadline, I always meet that deadline.”

You’ll be pleased with your decision to engage me to represent your legal interests.

Get in touch

I know that finding the right attorney to represent you is a choice not taken lightly. That’s why I offer a free 20-minute consultation to walk you through your needs, the scope of your goals, and your budget.

In 2010, after managing my own law firm (18 lawyers,14 support staff), and after serving as a partner in BigLaw, I opened my own (solo) practice to provide a different kind of client experience. My practice encompasses general civil matters, including commercial, real estate, insurance and coverage litigation; real estate/construction, extraordinary remedies, Uniform Commercial Code and arbitration/mediation. My business litigation practice has a specific focus on real estate, partnership disputes, and high-dollar collections. I am also a trained mediator. I have had an active trial practice for over 34 years.
