Q Why did you start your own firm?
A We were all accomplished litigators and experienced negotiators who shared a commitment to our clients. We wanted to be able to provide the level of service and attention that we know families need during a tumultuous time in their lives. We understand the importance of being with our clients every step of the way, and we know they value the level of support and guidance we provide. Our complementary skill sets and perspectives enlarge the scope of our services. And we care deeply about serving and improving the legal profession.
