Diligent Virginia litigator provides personalized attention
Amongst the people I have represented in legal matter, I have become known for offering understanding counsel that meets their unique needs. Past clients often refer me to others for my:
- Uniquely tailored strategy — I plan my legal strategies to fit the individual goals of each client. My experience has taught me that no two cases are the same. Client centered lawyering is a concept that I learned in law school and is the primary principle that I abide by when engaged in representation. From the onset, I ascertain the goals of the client in order to tailor my approach specifically to that individual.
- Affordable fees — My fees reflect the reality that many clients find big-firm fees impossible to afford. I strive to provide representation to ALL regardless of socioeconomic status. I offer a variety of payment options including flat fee arrangements for certain types of cases. Additionally, I offer flexible payment arrangements on a case by case basis.
- Prioritization of client needs — I get to know my clients and involve them in their own case, answering their questions and making myself available to them.
I am committed to providing personalized attention because I care about my clients and their families.
