There are two words that best sum up my mission as a lawyer: "Untiring Zeal."
I am a business trial attorney for corporations, small businesses, and high net worth individuals. Businesses do not like to put their futures into the hands of someone else, so generally they come to me when the problem they face is too intractable to handle themselves. They come to me for solutions.
As a litigator, I don't simply resolve disputes for my clients, I help protect the things most valuable to them: the ability to expand and re-invest in the business; hire new employees, acquire new equipment; maintain a sterling reputation; or distribute profits to the entrepreneurs and owners. I do that by defending against attacks on my clients' financial security and prosperity.
Sometimes protecting those interests means going on the offensive by filing lawsuits, other times it means defending them. In either case the goal is the same: to resolve the dispute and obtain the best possible result for the client in the most efficient and cost effective manner. Litigation is not inexpensive, but I am mindful that my clients' financial resources would be more productive when invested in capital equipment. That awareness helps me design every stage of the litigation and to make every dollar spent achieve some goal that will move the case closer to resolution.
I recognize that my clients are in a battle day-in-and-day-out with their competitors. That's why I do my work with Untiring Zeal--so they can focus on creating great products or delivering invaluable services. And they can rest assured knowing that their attorney cares enough about them and their business that he will put his heart, soul, mind, and strength into their case. Untiring Zeal. It's not a slogan, it's a way of life.
