Introduction

The practice of law is about solving problems. My goal is to help clients resolve their difficulties quickly, efficiently and economically. • Before the law, I ran a number of successful media and entertainment businesses. • In both business and the law, I take a problem solving approach to conflict resolution. I focus on the principles behind the parties positions and find common ground upon which to resolve the conflict. I am currently reviewing my practice and considering other opportunities.
