"In my practice, I endeavor to provide an environment in which clients feel both secure in seeking my advice and confident that I can adapt and innovate in order to overcome obstacles and adversity. What's unique about my practice is the combination of skills I have acquired in the areas of transactional real estate and business, and in real estate and business litigation, which enable me to identify more readily potential areas of practical concern, integrate a client's business imperatives and objectives with legal strategies, and seek ways creatively to obviate or resolve issues arising during the course of conflicts and negotiations."
