Attorney at Law
My practice focuses on complex transactions using my business, strategic, and financial acumen not only to give you the lawyer's answer, but also to give you the relevant business impacts of legal issues. My communications are in plain English, and I'm here to explain everything to your satisfaction. I'll answer your way - calls, emails, or texts.
