How I Resolve

As a lawyer, my role is to guide my client through the best favorable path to reach their specific goal. Effective communication can only be achieved if the attorney actively listens to the client’s concerns and addresses same while efficiently representing them through their case. While other people see a problem, I see multiple solutions waiting to be discovered.
