Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.

In a probate case, my client's mother was facing the lost of her home because her husband had died and the reverse mortgage holder was threating to foreclose on the house if the balance due on the reverse mortgage was not paid. The house was in the husband's name only and he had used the entire credit line. I was able to get court approval for a loan on the property in order to pay-off the reverse mortgage and then place the house in the name of the client's mother.

How did you build a successful practice?

I build a successful practice by concentrating on a few areas of law and becoming as knowledgeable in those areas as possible. I focused on marketing the practice to a target audience using every method I could. I then tried to provide the best service I could to my client's so that they would recommend me to others looking for legal representation.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?

A client should look for a lawyer who is knowledgeable and competence. A client should also look for a lawyer who attempts to resolve legal matters in the most expedient manner possible that is in the client's interest.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?

Local knowledge is important to the success of cases because each court has it's own way of operating that may be different from other courts. Knowing those differences can help obtaining the best results for the client.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?

In a free phone consultation I can provide client's with general information regarding the law as it applies to the client's particular situation.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?

In a free phone consultation, I first need to know what is the problem or situation that requires my help. Second, I need to know the general facts regarding the problem or situation that needs to be addressed.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?

Since all lawyers are knowable about the law, the main difference is the background and experience that I have that I bring to the practice of law.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

The most rewarding aspect of my job is to know that I that I have made a difference in someone's live by being able to resolve their legal problem.

What are your other interests in addition to law?

My other interests in addition to law are reading, traveling, cooking, chess, genealogy, and history.

Are you involved in your community?

Yes. I am involved in my community through the Bar Association that I was fortunate to be the president of, and also through volunteering through my Bar Association.
