Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial MediaResponsive Law

I pride myself on being responsive to my client's needs. My clients reach out to me for help with their businesses, development projects and personal needs. When they do, they are reaching out because something has come up that is beyond what they are comfortable handling alone. By responding quickly, I can help my clients avoid making difficult decisions without good advice.

I enjoy working with my clients to handle help them grow and protect their businesses for today and for tomorrow. I particularly enjoy real estate development, having grown up in a family that developed residential subdivisions and built beautiful custom homes. There is something very special about watching something being created and being able to know that you were a small part of someone's vision.

When I work with clients on planning for their estates, I believe that we need to know the client, something about their lives and something about their families to best advise them. Estate planning should not be solely about the best "math answer" but should hope to capture a person's hopes for their spouses, children, charities and beyond. You cannot learn those things by looking at a spreadsheet or financial report.

My goal is to provide strong counsel and guidance to people over their lifetimes and earn the right to be trusted with their family in the future.

I am a down to earth person. I do not wear suits unless I am going to court so please do not be surprised if I look like a "normal person" (other than my "Santa Claus beard". I do not believe that a person's worth or talents are measured by their wardrobe.
