Claimed Lawyer Profile

I will represent you as though you are a member of my family and I will treat you with the respect that I would want for myself.

I will listen to you and make every effort to understand your problem.

I will prepare you for court from the first moment we speak. I will tell you what you need to know before you need to know it so that you are ready for trial and ready to present yourself as a responsible person before the court.

I will use my experience for you. You get a lawyer who is qualified by public service as an assistant district attorney, an assistant attorney general and as an inspector general. Judges, prosecutors, juries, witnesses and police officers listen to me.

I will use my education for you. You get a lawyer who knows the law and the rules. I have two law degrees and I have taught law. I also have advanced training through continuing legal education programs and I have taught such programs as well.

I have been trained by the Harvard Negotiation Project. You get a lawyer who knows when to negotiate and when to fight.

Your financial situation is important. You get a lawyer who will listen to your concerns about legal fees and help you structure a payment plan that is fair to both of us.
