Attorney at Law
Providing excellent litigation services, trail work consulting, and e-discovery support to top law firms and the general counsel of leading companies. I have worked on a wide variety of cases that range from criminal antitrust matters to complex tort litigation and from government investigations to high-asset dissolutions.
I particularly enjoy consulting with legal service providers, boutique to mid-size firms, general in-house counsel, and solo practitioners.
