I care about my clients. As such, I am committed to providing quality legal support and counsel by being responsive to you, prepared for your case, knowledgeable of the law and the parties involved, and an effective advocate for your cause. I take your matter seriously, but also want to take the time to get to know you and for you to know me. Ultimately we are going to become partners and jointly try to resolve your issue. As such, we will take the time to educate you on the law involved and the options that you have at each stage of your case. In that way you will be able to make informed decisions when choices are presented to you. I also want to make a difference where most needed so I try to structure my fees and control my costs so that the legal services I provide are reasonable and cost effective.

I firmly believe that if the issues can be worked out between the parties, the remedies will last longer, and the benefits be increased. As such, I've lost "business" by suggesting ways the client can first help themselves before employing my services. Yet when employed, I and the rest of my office use all of our resources to fully litigate your position.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
