Every type of litigation—whether a highly contested divorce dispute or a complex commercial action—presents challenges to the client both professional and personal. To me, being a successful attorney is tied to my ability to prepare my clients not only to face what can be a stressful and emotional journey, but also to embrace what lies beyond with optimism and enthusiasm. That is one of my goals with each client, and part of what makes me an effective advocate.
