Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
I prevailed in a civil matter where the client was being sued for breach of lease. The breach and damages were the fault of a roommate who was in hiding. I got the case dismissed as to my client only saving her from financial ruin.

How did you build a successful practice?
I started with pro-bono work and referrals, gradually building the practice over a period of years.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Responsiveness, experience and the ability to communicate.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Helpful but not crucial.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
I don't do phone consultations. Consultations are for gathering information, assessing needs, explaining legal options and setting a fee arrangement.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
I give each client my personal attention. I personally attend every Court hearing and never send a junior associate.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Getting equal justice under the law for my clients.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
Classic Automobiles.
