When you hire an attorney, you should feel comfortable speaking with him or her. You should have the feeling your attorney is willing to spend as much time with you as is necessary to answer your questions and address your concerns.
Family Law, Personal Injury And Criminal Defense Attorney
There are attorneys who are friendly, big-picture lawyers, but who overlook important details. Others focus entirely on the details and lose sight of the client’s overall goals. When you are going through a divorce, dealing with an injury or facing a criminal or traffic charge, you need an attorney who combines those approaches; a lawyer who is personable and approachable yet focused on the details, meticulously prepared yet guided by your overall goals.
Those are the adjectives clients and other attorneys use to describe me. Part of my reputation is based on the amount of personal attention I give my clients. In fact, some of my colleagues have faulted me for actually spending too much time with clients. But it is that extra time spent with clients that puts my clients’ minds at ease and provides me with the necessary tools to achieve the best possible result for the client. The other part of my reputation is based on my skills as a trial attorney. I spent the first five years of my 25 year legal career as a Public Defender in the City of Richmond. Those years provided me with invaluable trial experience, as I was often in court, trying cases, every day of the workweek. A trial lawyer just cannot get better experience than that, and I have continued to cultivate and sharpen the trials skills I learned as a Public Defender over the last 20 years in private practice. Let me put those trial skills to work for you.
