About Me


In summary, I have practiced law as a sole practitioner for over 40  years. I have taught at various professional seminars and have also  presented programs to various clubs and other professional associations.  Over the years I have developed a practice that includes clients from  three generations and most of my clientele has been referred by other  clients. I would identify myself as a "general practitioner" that  encompasses most of the areas of the law. If I do not practice in the  area the client seeks, then I usually have colleagues who I am familiar  with who do specialize in those areas and can provide the quality and  character of service that I would provide to the client.

About My Firm


The most frequent question I have been asked over the last  40 years is, "Do I need a lawyer?" The answer is really quite simple:   Do you understand the matter you are involved in? Not the words, but the   concepts. With the Internet and public information available today, we  can generally  understand the general nature of our affairs, but the  constant changes and interpretations  of our laws is where most clients  need professional help. It is not the general  concepts but the  sophisticated interpretation that most clients seek. That is  when you  need to consult and retain a lawyer.

My firm is dedicated to working with the client to  understand and resolve their legal issues.
