As a civil litigator, it’s my goal to protect the rights and expectations for my clients when disputes arise. This is achieved through protecting the use and enjoyment of their investments; business partner relationships; fulfillment of contract obligations; and mitigating risk and conflict – ultimately providing stability and strength to all communities.
