As a young lawyer, I appreciate that my ability to be an effective communicator is at the heart of what I bring to the table when working with both my colleagues and the clients we represent.  Every conversation I engage in is a learning experience that provides me with opportunities to better understand the needs and goals of each individual client, which is the bottom line when it comes to providing strong representation.    

Mr. Raap concentrates his practice in the area of commercial litigation.
