“As a litigator, I help solve business problems in the context of legal disputes. Sometimes the best path forward involves crafting a creative business solution outside of the courtroom, and other times it involves aggressively litigating through trial and appeal. With my diverse litigation experience and business background, I work with clients to understand their business and implement an effective plan to achieve their goals.”
