Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

I provide efficient, effective and principled legal representation. We jointly plan your case as though it is a business project -- identify your goals, the best ways to accomplish your desired end and determine the work required (and who will do it). We evaluate each step to determine its impact on progress and your budget. We refrain from "tit for tat" retaliation because that lets others control your case. My decades of experience in business planning and execution of projects, litigation and dispute resolution and our full embrace of technological advances work for your advantage. No one works harder for you.
