I am a skillful, experienced, and concerned attorney serving individuals and others in the most difficult areas of everyday life: criminal defense, employment and work disputes, consumer protection, family law, and small business issues. My end goal is always the same -- obtaining the best and fairest outcome for every client, and with the least possible drama and expense.
Each case is unique with it own particular facts, background story, and legal and practical challenges. And in almost every case, the client's underlying problem and his or her need to deal with the legal system are profoundly stressful experiences, with high stakes and heightened emotions. I devote myself to each case. I will listen to you and treat you as an individual. And throughout my representation, I will always try to make you aware of the very real consequences of different possible courses of action. I respect each client's need for information and communication, always recognizing that in every case the ultimate decisions, as well as the ultimate practical consequences, belong to the client.
