WHAT CLIENTS SAY
“John is highly considerate of our way of doing things.”
“He makes us feel like his most valued client.”
MY CLIENT PHILOSOPHY
"Understand my client’s business by reading everything I can about its industry and organization. Understand my client’s specific legal goals by listening carefully, asking clarifying questions, and challenging any unsound assumptions. Try to “stand in the client’s shoes,” but always say what I really think, even if it isn’t what the client hoped to hear. Look for elegant, simplifying, solutions to achieve client objectives in a timely and economical manner."
