Overview/Personal Philosophy

I love being a lawyer and I love changing my clients’ perception of what it’s like to work with a lawyer. I often serve as a sounding board for our clients. While our clients know their business better than anyone, together we make a great team – we find the best possible approach to achieve the desired goals. Then, we make it happen in the most efficient way possible.

Personally, I love spending time with my family. I also enjoy cars (including racing them), local/regional travel, weight lifting, technology stuff, gadgets and cool watches.
