I love helping people! For me, it is a great honor to serve as a trusted advisor to my clients. Through years of listening and learning, I’ve come to appreciate the fact that when people seek an attorney to help them, they want someone who will listen, understand their problem and give them sensible, practical advice, based on a thorough understanding of the law. I have found that listening and understanding is foundational to delivering the right solution. I gave up wearing ties years ago. Mostly because I really don’t like wearing them. But also, because when a client sits down in my office, I want them thinking about their problem and how we can work together to solve it. I don’t want a stuffy atmosphere that stifles good communication. Most of the people I work with have needs that fall into one or more of three categories: real estate, estate planning and probate and business law.
