My professional successes are rooted in my commitment to my clients – not just a commitment to provide top notch legal services, but a commitment to provide timely and efficient top notch legal services.  The private practice of law is not a 9 to 5 job, and my clients know that when they call me, whether it is during “business hours” or on my cell phone on a Saturday night, I am going to answer the call, and I am going to tackle the problem.
