For almost three decades, our firm has been fortunate to represent many clients for both personal and professional needs.  And during that time, we have seen a lot of legal matters that could have been avoided or handled in a better manner.  In this space you will find a variety of musings that represent some of those experiences, which also hopefully provide some useful tidbits that you will find valuable as you contemplate your individual situation and needs.


Please note that while each of these examples may be based on prior cases or other observations, they do not reflect a specific interpretation of the law, but rather a perspective on unique circumstances that may be worthy of consideration when choosing to seek representation.  Every client has unique circumstances, and our firm will review each matter in its entirety without prejudice in determining if we feel that we can effectively help you resolve an issue.
