Experienced Senior Counsel

A thoughtful approach to legal matters

Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you’ll take a moment to read about my approach to helping address whatever legal challenge you’re facing.

In more than four decades I’ve worked as a federal prosecutor, been a partner or an attorney in two national firms, and managed my own boutique firm for 20 years. I’ve been fortunate to have handled a wide variety of legal matters, ranging from simple to complex, and many high-stakes and high profile cases and causes I have advocated for - in the courtroom, through mediation and other alternative dispute resolution strategies, and the court of public opinion. My philosophy has always been that I work for the client, not the firm.

I’m in a unique position in my career where I have the luxury of working for a few select clients that I truly believe I can help navigate through their legal issue – without the trappings, hassles and exorbitant costs that come with a big law firm. I don’t focus on some billable hours quota; rather my only goal is to help you solve your legal issue.

I am a problem solver, the more complex the better. My experience has given me the ability to see through the legal complexities of an issue, properly diagnose the problem, and develop a strategy that solves your problem and achieves your goal in an efficient manner. I have the insight and big-picture perspective to help you navigate the legal maze you may be facing. When asked for,  I use my leadership skills and extensive network to assemble and manage a team of professionals to handle your crisis, be it litigation or otherwise.

If you could benefit from working with experienced senior counsel, or if you simply want a second analysis on your macro situation, get an additional opinion from the perspective of resolving your problem strategically and expeditiously, let’s have a conversation.
