Experience & Understanding
I strongly believe in the phrase “there’s no substitute for experience.” In my three decades of practice, though, I’ve also found that truly connecting with someone’s situation is just as important.
Thinking ahead for you & your family
I can’t predict the future, but I can help you plan for it. Let my experience work to your advantage as we explore opportunities to make life a little easier for you and your loved ones.
Every situation is different. I want to hear what’s important to you.
During my 30 years as an attorney, I’ve come to realize that no two legal situations are ever quite the same. As an example, let’s consider the way different clients react to a word that frequently comes up in my practice: “protect.”
“Protect’ is a broad term. It means a lot of things to a lot of people but ultimately always points to the things that matter most to them.
To some — for instance, those contemplating their future — it means carrying on their legacy and ensuring their families are well looked after once they’re gone. To others, the word brings up the thought of securing their business or their assets — two things they’ve worked hard to build and grow over years.
Still others jump to a different conclusion when they hear the term. For those who’ve recently lost someone they love, the word “protect” tends to invoke a bittersweet feeling. They can no longer protect their loved one from physical harm, but they can fight to make sure their wishes are honored and properly carried out.
No matter how you look at your legal situation — whether it resulted from a recent loss, a concern about your business, or a desire to plan for the future — you’re looking to protect someone or something that’s important to you. As a genuine client advocate, I’d love to learn what that is so I can do my due diligence to help.
Even more important than my mission to help is your process of recovery. When you and I finish working together, my hope is that you will walk away feeling safer, wiser, and in an overall healthier place than when we met.
