Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

After 25 years as a corporate attorney and executive, I am very familiar with all aspects of business law and helping businesses grow. In addition, I have been a professional musician for over 30 years and understand exactly the legal challenges that musicians face in the industry. Plus, I've been in the courtroom as well. Ultimately, when diplomacy fails, you have to be ready to fight and I am happy to go up against whoever your adversary may be. However, litigation is expensive and often unnecessary with the right advice. If you are looking for an attorney who is more concerned with growing your business or brand than in billing hours, you should contact me.

Many cases involve amounts under $10,000 and these are too small to interest many lawyers. They are called "small claims," but I know these claims can mean a lot to you. You can go to small claims court by yourself, but having a lawyer to protect your interests is the smart move. Whether you are filing a claim or defending against one, I am focused on small claims and helping you resolve your issues. I offer free consultations and "flat rate" billing so you can easily budget what litigation will cost. For me, its all about helping you be successful.
