My job is to understand my client and his or her unique situation and develop a strategy that will inform the court and other parties of why a certain outcome is the correct legal choice. Negotiation is always the preferred method of dealing with a legal crisis, and the fact that I am willing and able to take a matter to trial is the backbone of any successful negotiation. I am a trial attorney. Getting a fair trial is a right firmly rooted in our Constitution.”
