The range of my experience gives me the edge on getting results. I am an adjunct professor of law at two universities. I am a negotiator, a litigator and an appellate attorney. I practice in administrative, state and federal courts. I am a governmental affairs advisor (a fancy way of saying “lobbyist”). There are a thousand ways to solve any one problem. The trick is picking the optimal solution and crafting a strategy for success.
