I help great people achieve great results in legal disputes. This all starts with a conversation. We’ll discuss the outcome you want, the options to get you there, and ways to reduce cost and risk.

I’m a pragmatic lawyer who is passionate about providing transparent and cost-effective legal services to achieve outcomes that get people what they actually expect. That is not just about winning cases; but, with minimal costs and time, achieving results that clients know are fair and best meet their own needs.

Representing private clients to public Fortune 500 companies, I’ve applied legal acumen, strong advocacy skills, the latest technology and dedication to my clients to drive great results. I have acted in almost every dispute resolution process available but always looked beyond the strict legal problem and process to address the wider commercial issues that are critical to clients.
