What Sets Us Apart

  1. We have built a reputation for credibility among those who make decisions that affect our clients. Although we are "a government of laws and not men," it is men and women — judges, juries and public officials — who are entrusted with the responsibility of upholding the law. Our years of experience as both lawmakers and lawyers and our participation in community service activities have sharpened our ability to explain with persuasion the merit of our clients' cases.
  2. We have a deep understanding of the law that comes from not only many years of practicing law but also from many years of participating in the process by which laws are enacted and modified. In short, we know, from the inside, why the laws are enacted
  3. We take pride in our ability to connect with our clients and understand their objectives and needs.
  4. We promptly and accurately pinpoint clients' opportunities as well as risks. Our ability to analyze a case has allowed us to develop effective legal strategies for reaching our clients' goals.
