"My clients, whether they be individual property owners, businesses, or families, know that I am their advocate and that I will work hard to make sure their voices are heard and that my clients are always cognizant of the economics of their cases. I think that it is important for every client to seriously consider the economic costs and benefits of every dispute. I present their stories to the opposing party, the court, the appraisal panel, and the jury in a way that is both compelling and unassailable."
