Caring for Your Financial and Legal Future
Every case is as unique as the individuals involved. Over my 30 years of practice as an attorney, I have learned that the strategies and approaches I employ need to be carefully refined and adapted to the particular needs of each individual.
I believe this means that focused and consistent client care is the foundation of what we do as lawyers. I feel it is important to understand the underlying interests and motivations of my clients. This attention to service is among a number of qualities we try to exemplify, including:
- Valuable Experience
- A Proven Record
- Attention to Detail
- Ability to Work with High-Asset and Complex Matters
- Adaptability to Client Needs
- Provide Efficient Analysis
- Empower Clients to Control Their Own Case
Both family law and estate practice involve property and income arrangements. Whether I represent or assist you in a family law matter, a will or trust, child support, child custody, a divorce or prenuptial agreement, my office helps you build a plan that preserves your wealth and assets for future generations. I make it a priority to understand my clients, including a client’s business and tax concerns, so that I can help them achieve the best possible results.
In cases of death and divorce, clients deal with loss. Legal proceedings often compound that with a sense of loss of control. We are conscious of this and work hard to support and empower the client to move forward as positively, constructively and realistically as feasible.
