    My objective in serving clients is, first and foremost, to be accessible. It does a client no good if an attorney has all the ability and knowledge in the world but fails to communicate with their client effectively.

Don’t settle for being ignored; don’t settle for unreturned phone calls or e-mails; don’t settle if you can’t schedule an appointment to meet face to face with your attorney. Your case is personal to you, and my objective is to give you the personal service you deserve.
