My goal is to help clients achieve and optimize the results they desire. For individuals, this means a happy and meaningful life in retirement. For firms, it means timely, effective and respectful retirements, client transitions, and leadership succession for partners and executives. It also means better mentoring and sponsorship to develop, retain and advance legal talent.

My unique perspective and expertise allow me to offer clients customized advice based on a strong foundation of knowledge and experience in these areas. I also recognize the importance and value of innovation and creativity. So my approach emphasizes both best current practices and sensible, carefully considered innovations.

In addition to legal professionals, my clients include individuals and organizations in finance, accounting, health care, technology, academia, management consulting, government and business.
