When I first entered the legal field over seven years ago I realized some ugly truths. The first thing that surprised me was how many people are victims of a highly technical legal system because they don’t possess the necessary knowledge to navigate the intricacies of the law. Often times people will choose to try and handle their case on their own, but the complicated structure of statutes and code sections are not designed to be understood by the average Joe. And that lack of understanding so often results in negative outcomes.
My desire is for each client that I represent to be confident in the fact that I have done thorough research on every aspect of their case and am ready to approach their case fully equipped with every piece of knowledge I could need to help them obtain a successful result. My attention to detail and exceptional memory help me uncover and retain information that can significantly impact the outcome of a client's cases.
Another ugly truth I realized when entering the legal field is the number of attorneys out there who approach opposing counsel as the enemy and unnecessarily prolong the litigation process. It is not our job as attorneys to fight with each other. It is our job to help our clients find solutions to their problems and resolve difficult situations that have arisen so that each person may move on with their lives. This doesn’t mean that I won’t take a strong stance to protect my clients. But it does mean that I know how to choose my battles so that the needs and desires of clients and the ability to resolve their cases come first.
