The latest news and information on Construction Law.
I believe law as results means VALUE - a focus on the return my clients will receive from their legal investment. For my clients, I am a means to an end. Returning value to my clients therefore requires a commitment to results, not process.
I spent ten years in construction before becoming an attorney. Construction can be a high stakes business that, at times, feels something like collecting pennies beneath a swinging wrecking ball. I know there are no spare resources to spend on unproductive legal expeditions. So my practice goal is to provide value to those construction contractors and suppliers that want Law as Results. This requires being well-versed in substantive construction and contract law, providing able-minded contract drafting and review, and always being a credible advocate.
How do I provide value? I provide value by creating opportunities for my clients that would have never otherwise existed. I provide value by understanding my clients' businesses, by understanding their legal needs, and by understanding how to move them forward. I provide value through an unmatched commitment to demonstrable returns.
Value is putting the client in a better position than when the client turned to me. When that kind of value is returned to the client, that's Law as Results.
