Business Philosophy

We recognize that clients are sometimes hesitant to start thinking about estate planning and business succession. We understand that clients are sometimes overwhelmed by the choices they face about how best to provide for and protect themselves, their families, and their community.

We believe that these sometimes challenging decisions can be made easier by working with an attorney with the education, experience, and interpersonal skills to sort through the options and assist in choosing the best solutions to each client’s specific situation. We enjoy contributing to the peace of mind that clients experience when they take proactive steps to achieve their goals.

We prefer to build relationships with our clients and encourage thoughtful discussion before making decisions. We believe in the power of philanthropy and are eager to help donors explore their core values and the ways in which they can achieve their charitable goals.

Our practice is not focused on maximizing billable hours. We do not have a large staff that needs to be kept busy. Your important legal issues will not be passed off to inexperienced junior associates. We are focused on offering sophisticated and informed legal advice in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

We want our clients to fully understand their legal situations and the solutions we offer. We encourage questions - no matter how unimportant they may appear. Much of our work is done on a fixed fee basis so our clients can feel free to explore their options without feeling like the clock is running.

We strive to complete work in a timely manner. We respect your time, your concerns, and your privacy.
