“ Throughout my career I have sought to provide creative and high quality legal solutions for my clients. My first mentor when I started practicing law taught me that clients need an attorney who is a good listener and actually hears and understands their concerns and problems. I use this lesson every day in my health law practice to meet and exceed client expectations.”
