If I was asked to write one sentence that sums up myself as an attorney, it would be this: I truly care about my clients.
I had an entirely successful career in a completely different field when I decided I wanted to be an attorney; a professional musician. Watching my fellow musicians and friends get pushed around by the legal system in various ways, I quickly realized that I wanted to stand up for these people and give them honest legal representation. I grew tired of seeing the stereotypical attorney take their money and not give them results. I vowed that I would be different.
I entered my undergrad studies with a direct plan of attack to go to law school. I made every decision based on how it would assist me in getting to law school and beyond, all with the clear goal in mind … so I could help people. I had the vision and knew what I wanted. I studied under some of the best judges and attorneys from across the country before teaming up with John Hopper and deciding to open our own practice. We both had the same vision and it only made sense for us to want to work together in order to work for you.
I also work with an organization called Hanoi’s Lost Child Foundation. It is a non-profit group that raises funds to assist veterans that are in need. The organization has prevented many suicides, rehomed homeless vets, gotten medical treatment for those vets denied by the VA, and repaired dilapidated grave memorials, for example.
When I am not in the courtroom, you will probably find me lending my time with Hanoi’s Lost Child. Or, you might see me pickin' a few tunes on stage for a rare appearance of playing music once again. All these activities keep me grounded and my mind on my vow to help and get results for you.
What can I do to help my client? What do they need? What can I do to get them the results they desire? These are all questions I ask myself every day. This is what keeps me motivated. I desire to know that I accomplished what you needed me to accomplish. I relish in the hope that the next time you need assistance you will come back to me. I promise that you are not just another file on my desk. I want a long-lasting relationship with you. I want to earn your trust.
You will receive undivided attention to your case, making you feel like you are the only person in the room, even if you are surrounded by hundreds of others. If you have concerns about your case, I will take the time to talk to you and give an honest explanation of where things stand.
Contact me today if you are having a problem you think needs legal assistance. I will be more than happy to treat you like I have many others and begin building our legal relationship. I am ready to relentlessly pursue your rights. Always remember, your more than just a file.
