Whatever success I have I share with the partners in my firm and the young lawyers working for me. They know that getting deals done fairly and cost-effectively comes from not only knowing the law and business but from cultivating and nurturing relationships with clients and the other lawyers we deal with. As a team, we work hard to establish and maintain a reputation for being smart, practical and reasonable.
