FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

The majority of our clients are referrals.  Initial client will be made by client by telephone.  The client will explain his/her issues.  If their need for legal advice, or representation, falls within our practice areas, we will give a fee estimate and schedule an appointment.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Beside law school and 38 years of practice, I have also been a law professor and lecturer.
