Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
I tried a case for a juvenile client being tried on an assault charge. In working with this client I noticed his behavior was different at times and certainly inconsistent. I had him evaluated by a mental health professional and it was discovered he indeed had behavioral issues which caused his violent behavior. The parents were indigent and unable to provide any type of mental health services for their son. I was able to help him legally but with making his life better after receiving the mental health support he needed.
How did you build a successful practice?
I have built a successful practice by treating everyone as I would like to be treated, being available to my clients and above all being honest and forthright throughout our relationship. I believe that everyone in entitled to the best I have to give.
What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Clients needing an attorney should look for an experienced professional, available to them and responsive to their needs.
How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Knowledge of local resources and practices are vital in making sure our clients receive the best possible legal services which sometimes requires community assistance.
What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
In a free legal consultation I can provide approximate cost of services to handle their legal issues, a brief procedure for handling their legal matter and availability of scheduling for a face to face consultation.
What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
I have over 25 years of legal experience in many areas of the law. I am a one-stop "Shop" if you will for all types of legal matters. I am a small firm and available to my clients, unlike the large firms where clients rarely are able to speak with their attorney.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
The most rewarding aspect of my job helping those experiencing legal issues to feel at ease as they place their trust in me to help them get to the other side.
What are your other interests in addition to law?
In addition to law, I enjoy mentoring young professionals as they develop their career.
Are you involved in your community?
I am involved in my community as a Tennis Official which enables me to participate in youth tennis programs encouraging young people to develop and foster a love for the game which in turn gives them a life long interest in athletics and maintaining good health both mentally and physically. I also participate in assisting those in the community with their legal matters on a pro bono basis.
