What You Get When I am Your Lawyer
You get a lawyer who knows how to listen well.
You get a lawyer who will prepare you for court from the first moment we speak. I will tell you what you need to know before you need to know it so that you are ready for trial and ready to present yourself as a responsible person before the court.
You get a lawyer who is qualified by public service as an assistant district attorney, an assistant attorney general and as an inspector general. Judges, prosecutors, juries, witnesses and police officers listen to me.
You get a lawyer who will motivate you with my experience, education and mostly, my common sense.
You get a lawyer who knows the law and the rules. I have two law degrees and I have taught law. I also have advanced training through continuing legal education programs and I have taught such programs as well.
You get a lawyer who knows when to negotiate and when to fight.
You get a lawyer who will listen to your concerns about legal fees and help you structure a payment plan that is fair to both of us.
What You Do NOT Get When I am Your Lawyer
I don’t try to get clients by scaring people into hiring me. You’re probably scared enough already. It doesn’t make a lawyer any more effective if he is able to scare you even more.
I don’t try to get clients by telling them that we are going to go to war if they hire me. I will use whatever legal skills and tactics I need to defend you. My goal is to get you out of trouble while exposing you to the least amount of risk.
I don’t try to get clients by telling them that I’m going to get all the evidence against them thrown out of court after speaking with them over the telephone for the first time. Only an investigation is going to tell me the extent of the evidence against you and whether some or all of it is likely to be thrown out by the Court.
I don’t try to get clients by telling them how terrible other lawyers are. I figure that when you talk to me, you’ll figure out that I’m someone you can trust to put on your best defense
