Client Bill of Rights

I believe that when you hire a lawyer, you should know exactly the type of relationship and experience which that lawyer is committed to providing to you. You deserve to be treated with courtesy, respect and consideration.

That is why I have initiated what we call our Client Bill Of Rights, which I have set forth below.

You deserve peace of mind. Below you will find our promise to you of the relationship and experience which we are committed to providing, as well as the fundamental values which we hold important.
