I practice proactively and try hard to give as much personal attention as possible to each and every client and his or her case.  The key factor that drew me to become a lawyer---and which sustains my ongoing passion for the law---is a visceral reaction to hypocrisy and deceptiveness.  It is my desire to represent people who have been seriously injured or wronged in the legal system.  Perhaps it is naïve to seek justice wherever the chips may fall; but I would rather innocently seek to right wrongs than cynically act to protect a flawed status quo.
