March 2019

I f you want to succeed in your career, it’s important to put your head down and work until the results are inevitable. But if you want to succeed in life, you need to be present, flexible, and willing to let your guard down every once in a while. Over the years, I have met and befriended countless people throughmy journey in law, and I have grown a reputation as a dependable and tenacious worker for my clients and friends alike. Yet something a lot of my clients may not know about is my life beyondmy legal practice. This Marchmarks 27 years of marriage for my wife, Amy, andme.

The closeness and ever-constant support of my family are the driving factor in why I do what I do for my community. Anyone with a family will understand where these passions come from, always wanting to give them the world at any cost. Taking care of my family andmaintaining harmony is extremely important tome, and that has always overflowed intomy practice. The majority of my clients aim to do the exact same thing. We want to be able to provide for our loved ones nomatter what unforeseeable situations arise. When I sit down withmy clients and discuss our goals for the future, my motivation is always tomake things as easy as possible throughout the process of planning your estate and affairs. We’re both on the same page, with family harmony taking the utmost priority.
