Fred regularly advises clients regarding all aspects of business formation, governance, contracts, regulatory compliance, real estate purchase and sale, business disputes, intellectual property, and financing.
What is the best part of your job?
Meeting the needs of my clients in a timely manner. I love working with a group of attorneys who have distinguished themselves in our profession.
What are you most proud of in your practice?
Clients who have entrusted me with their legal needs for more than 25 years. My best source of new clients is referrals from existing clients.
What do you think are the three most important things you do to serve your clients?
Return your client's phone calls or emails by the end of the day. Work to understand the client’s legal needs as they relate to their business interests and economic realities. Work efficiently to reduce the client's costs while providing requested or required legal services. Do these things, and you will be successful.
