I try to give you relief and guidance in an increasingly confusing world by giving you my direct number, being honest, working hard, and offering services with your budget in mind.
I know about the reputation that lawyers have and there are many of us who deserve it. But I hope I can give some measure of relief to my clients by caring about them and doing my best to ethically face down life’s challenges with them.
What prompted me to focus on this area of the law? I encountered several clients who had been given incorrect advice about how to handle student loan problems. I then encountered students that needed help but had been quoted hourly rates that put help beyond their reach.
Finally, I had an experience where I tried to refer someone to a talented attorney in a larger law firm. It was like I was trying to reach the president of a major corporation. I got bounced around from secretary to secretary and never actually got through.
I think my job is to make the world a better place and, if possible, to make you feel less stressed in the process. Phone trees, fine print, corporations where I can’t reach the person I need to talk to, these are things that definitely don’t make me feel less stressed.
