Who do I work for?

I am able to engage at an early stage of the trial process, including both client conferences and written advices. I make a point of providing clients with early tactical advice.

I bring a mixture of experience, objectivity and reality to my cases. All cases are thoroughly prepared and client meetings reflect this; meetings are well-structured and efficient. I always ensure that clients are clear about their options and prospects of success through realistic advice and the continued support that I provide throughout the process.
