What do you think are the three most important things you do to serve your clients?
1) Always think about the best long-term solutions. 2) Maintain a level head when issues get heated and emotional. 3) Always ask more questions to learn as much as I can about my client’s business, issues, and needs.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I enjoy spending time with my wife and young son, reading, training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and, when time permits, getting outside to hike, run, or bike.
What is the best part of your job?
As lawyers, sometimes we take for granted how confusing and intimidating it is being involved in a legal proceeding. The best part of my job is being able to help guide my clients through this process and seeing the relief that results when a matter is resolved.
