Why I Practice Law:
Justice, like quality legal services, should not be only for big corporations and those who can afford the highest-priced lawyers from the biggest firms. During my 13 years in a 200-plus lawyer firm, one of my partners had a Scale of Justice in his office. He placed a roll of dollars on one side of the scale, and tilted the scale in that direction. It was something with which I was never comfortable.
The Pledge of Allegiance ends: "with liberty and justice for all." I believe that this should be the objective of our legal system. It is the objective of this law firm.
My goal is to provide outstanding legal services to individuals and small businesses, with the quality and experience expected in a "downtown" law firm, but with the personal attention of a community law office.
- For injured persons: to obtain full and fair compensation for medical bills, lost income, disability, pain and suffering.
- For those who have suffered wrongful death of a loved one: to provide compassionate and understanding legal representation in obtaining compensation to replace the income lost, and compensate for the loss of love and affection, recognizing that no amount of compensation can fully replace a life lost.
- For those planning for their future: to provide sound practical guidance and legal advice in preparing wills and living wills, and by elder law planning, to help preserve for your assets for your family and not the government.
- For small businesses: to help you through the process of establishing a small business, and to provide guidance to help you avoid unnecessary legal problems in the operation of your business.
- For those who are suing someone or who have been sued: to provide vigorous representation always keeping in mind the client’s objectives; to keep you informed at every step of the proceeding; to use all reasonable efforts to resolve matters by settlement when possible; and when necessary, to aggressively represent you at trial or on appeal.
