Practice & Mediation
I try to maintain a general practice for the needs of my clients. Sometimes you just need a question answered or simple matter handled. I offer general practice services on a limited basis. I also offer unbundled services, in case you just need a document written, partial representation, or help with a small portion of your case. I also have a network of attorneys whom I work within the event you need legal help outside of my practice areas. I only recommend attorneys whom I know and trust.
Mediation is also a growing part of my practice. Mediation has many advantages and can be the answer you are looking for. Mediation offers a reduced time and cost to resolution, offers solutions which may not be available in court, and often more satisfying results. There are many instances where mediation can be the answer you are looking for. Please contact me for more information.
