My philosophy is to obtain the best result possible for my client. And that starts with listening to my clients, understanding how they see things. I try to be honest with my clients and instill in them an appreciation of the strengths and weaknesses of the case. I set reasonable expectations about victory and defeat, settlement, and jury verdicts. If the case must go to trial, no one will work harder or be more prepared than me.
I hold myself to the highest of ethical standards. Doing the right thing is always the answer.
