Principles

Be Prepared, Never Get Out-Worked

• Nobody will work harder than me on a case.

Perform Top-Quality Legal Work

• Provide clients with sophisticated, high-level legal work on paper and in the courtroom.

Be Tough and Professional

• Hard, fair blows are part of the legal system and part of successfully defending a case. My clients demand and require toughness. Scorched-earth tactics are usually bad for the current client and the many others that follow.

Communicate Effectively

• A lawyer’s job is to advocate for his or her client effectively. Being a skillful advocate means communicating with people in a clear, direct manner.

Have Integrity, Respect, and Humility

• Defending someone’s freedom requires integrity, respect, and humility. Honesty and the truth are an advocate’s most powerful weapons.
