Guiding Principles

  • An attorney needs an understanding of the client, the client's history, achievements, problems, dynamics and concerns.
  • Whatever vocabulary the client may use, there are frequently more important matters underlying what is presented. The good counselor works beyond the apparent discussion to understand the real issues.
  • Our area requires a strong technical background. It also requires time, experience, and the ability to listen, to construct creatively and to articulate directly and sympathetically.
  • Clients evolve and there are no templates that work for all clients. Over the years, goals, needs and relationships change. A plan has a relatively short useful life and requires regular reconsideration and flexibility.
  • The counselor must respect the uniqueness of the situation but also be prepared to offer perspective based on experience.
