Personal Quote

It’s important for clients to have continuous contact with their attorney. That’s why, when I take on a case, I personally attend to every detail: the pleadings, discovery, depositions and trial. After trying every type of case imaginable over the past 40-plus years, it’s rare that I’m faced with an issue that I haven’t already litigated.
