Practice/Organization Description

I am a litigator and business lawyer, with extensive practice both domestically and internationally.Many of my clients say that they like working withme because i have had a very extensive business career as well as a legal career. i have run several businesses during my long legal career and tend to view issues from both a legal and business point of view. I am well versed on tax issues as they may affect transactions and do transactional work, such as acquisitions and mergers as well as trial work> I also have a love of family matters, which confounds most of my partners, but I believe that i can assit people going through a most difficult time of life and so accept some family law matters on a selective basis.
