I enjoy assisting closely held business entities and individuals with their business needs. As a business owner and transactional attorney, my “job” is to provide our clients with a legal and practical roadmap for accomplishing their business objectives and goals. The phrase “If the plan doesn’t work, change the plan, not the goal” captures the essence of how I approach a client’s transactional needs.
