I might never fully understand your struggle, but I understand a lot of it. I’ve been juggling multiple jobs, continuing education, and sports, since I was 12 years old. Except for a small grant I got in undergraduate school, I paid for my own education–and am still paying for much of it. I know that, for most of us, there is no paved superhighway to success, yet I can see opportunities off the traditional paths. Perhaps that is why I have been in solo law practice since 2003.
Owning my firm has allowed me to offer a broader range of conflict resolution services. I can custom-tailor solutions to your unique needs, understanding that you do your best to avoid the situations that lead you to contact a lawyer. I won’t take that personally. Let’s see what we can do to keep you out of court and build your conflict resolution skills, so you can stay out. E-mail or call me to get started.
