Summary

Giving legal counsel and advice is a difficult practice, governed by a web of intersecting federal and state legislation and subject to constant change. Whether you are looking at legal compliance, negotiating a contract or real estate deal, or having to fight an unreasonable claim or lawsuit, you have to balance legal rights and obligations with the knowledge that business and life must go on. That is why I consider every client my most important client and give clients easy access, fast response times, brief, practical, and easy to understand legal advice, and point out and help clients manage legal risks before they become expensive problems.
