SUMMARY
Hands on owner of a sole proprietorship with multi-industry experience and a proven track
record of maintaining a good reputation of zealously and competently representing my clients for
the past 16 years. I successfully handled many different types of legal matters by devoting my
attention to each matter, applying my business background in finance and economics to the
situation and factoring in compassion in giving my legal advice and strategy to my clients. I like
the practice of law because it combines some of my most favorite things: creativity, change,
intellectual debate in the pursuit of helping another human being, the ability to give back, and a
good game of chess.

Houser; Paul Weiss; Bird Marella; Reed Smith; and Boies, Schiller, Flexner
