"I take pride in being a problem-solver who works with my clients to identify options that will enable them to accomplish their goals while complying with applicable legal requirements.

My in-house experience has taught me to be efficient, and to give clients the amount of legal help required---not more. It also has given me an insider feel for the healthcare environment.

My past work as a commercial litigator has given me a keen sense of how facts, documents and witnesses can be used, and how they will look if the situation or transaction winds up in court---very useful in helping clients assess the degree of risk in that situation or transaction."
