Q & A
What kind of relationship do you like to have with your clients?
I view myself as part of the client’s team. I take a lot pride in understanding each client’s business. One of my clients likes to say that I am part of the “circle of trust.” 
What makes you different from your competitors?
I look beyond the individual litigation I am working on and appreciate how each case impacts a client’s business. This allows me to provide advice and implement strategies that result not only in the successful resolution of individual cases, but also long-term (and often time unexpected) benefits for my clients.
