My Vision

YOUR LEGAL PARTNER

There is very little that is “small” about owning a small business.

 

The wins are huge, and the losses feel even more so. The sleepless nights - checking your phone and hoping it's not 5am and time to wake up without having slept - aren’t small. The weight on your shoulders isn’t small either, knowing that your clients, employees, and family are all depending on you. 

 

I get it. I’m the son of a small business owner and have represented small businesses my entire career. I've also worked, both as outside counsel and in-house, for very large companies with significant resources. I understand the challenges facing both. 

 

Here's what I do: I care. I bring passion for YOUR company to my representation of you. I know you don't want to pay for legal services - you'd rather reinvest that money into marketing, or bonuses for your employees, or one of the dozens of other great ideas you have waiting. 

My vision is to be a partner with you to minimize your legal spend, keep your customers and employees happy, and keep your business running smoothly.  That's it. 

Learn more about my professional background and why you want me to be your outside general counsel or to partner with your existing legal team.
