What do you focus on?

I represent businesses from a diverse range of industries in a variety of litigation matters in both state and federal court and before administrative agencies. I help ensure cases run smoothly by assisting in all phases of litigation, including drafting complaints, conducting discovery and preparing for trial.

What do you see on the horizon?

I see the ever-growing use of electronic communication continue to pose ethical problems for the legal profession. Lawyers and clients alike will have to find ways to see each other as human and not just as words behind a screen.
