    TESTIMONIALS

    • “A very solid and very quiet lawyer, unassuming but good. He’s on my shortlist of people to send work to…"

      -Chambers 2012

    • “He is a great real estate lawyer. He is practical as opposed to a theorist. He has common sense and is a problem-solving real estate attorney. His demeanor is very calm – he doesn’t overreact and thinks through the issue before he starts talking about it. He is calm, steady and persistent. I have recommended him to others and they have used him too. He is a prize, the kind of attorney you want – not throw his weight around, not center of attention, calmly deal with, keep it low key and move it forward. He evaluates things and possible compromises. He just gets what you need done. I don’t know all real estate lawyers but I know a lot of them, he is as good as any of them.”
