On any day, some of us will be shepherding a major real estate development through its approval process, some will be preparing for trial in a case that the client cannot afford to lose, and others will be guiding a family through the intricacies involved in passing their wealth on to future generations and philanthropic causes. Very different areas, calling for very different skills. But the questions we ask ourselves in every matter are really the same: how can we most effectively further and safeguard our client's interests, and how can we best provide the client with the information she or he needs in order to make critical business and personal decisions? There is no magic to this (although we're still looking), so we make do with the next best thing: hard work, the wisdom that comes with experience, and a deep dedication to the client's objectives.
