Professional Profile

My law office is comprised of one person, me.  You may reach a voice mail but your call will be returned in a timely manner and your work will not be referred to the paralegal or legal assistant only to be billed at the attorney's rates.  Many of my small business clients retain me on a flat monthly fee so they can have the access to legal advice an in-house attorney provides at a price their business can justify.

Several years after graduation from law school I realized that if I were to reach my goal of providing legal services to the health care industry I would have to offer those services differently from the large established firms.  I began offereing my services to health care entities on a monthly flat fee basis so they would have access to an attorney without worrying about the ever mounting hourly charges.  The result is a practice comprised mostly of this type of attorney-client relationships with clients happy that we can discuss issues before they've spin out of control into costly litigation.  That work is combined with work for clients on the customary hourly basis to create what I believe is a law office that provides a cost effective service.
