Q & A
What is your relationship with clients?
My clients view me as a trusted business advisor and close confidant.  They look to me for more than legal advice.  They are looking for assistance and guidance in making practical business decisions.
What is the biggest challenge facing South Florida?
Transportation.  We must address the traffic issues and the lack of public transportation.
