“I love finding creative solutions to problems, and I think that’s been lacking in the legal world—people don’t think of out-of-the-box solutions anymore. Both law school and the legal environment teach you to do things a certain way, which sometimes disregards common sense. I like to challenge that and discover new ways to solve problems.”
The reason my clients trust me is because I always put myself in their situation and think through solutions from every angle.
