Excellence, diligence and integrity are values that form the basis of my practice. Regardless of the matter, I am always forthright with my clients and attack the real issues. This philosophy is the reason why both private and institutional clients and decision-makers have confidence in my work.
We are among the privileged in society and so we have a duty to put our talents and time to good use in the numerous organizations that need our help. I am particularly moved by causes that involve sports and young people.
