Attorney at Law and Professional Executive
I am the trial attorney you want in the board room, checking up on GC, and directing strategy as the top executive's right hand (or at times as the CEO).
Every aspect of business has come across my desk - from founders to dead employees to ten-figure exits - I literally have been through all of it.
I am all about results and could care less about where anyone went to school or what firm anyone started at - the odds are that I have bested at least one partner at your chosen AmLaw100 firm and exposed the stupidity of lawyers from each of the top schools.
I am either in my… read more office or traveling internationally handling the heavy lifting for my clients. BS in finance, JD, and MBA. Licensed in California and representing clients all over the world, both public and private.
