In my world, success is when you further your interests. It’s as simple as that.
Since 1997 I have advised small business owners about what they must know before entering into a contract so that they could limit their risk of facing costly civil litigation and bad press. As a company lawyer, I tell businesses owners and people what they should do if they have been sued.
I have successfully represented a range of New York companies, from non-profits to executive search firms, along with many people. I have lectured about business law for many different groups, including continuing legal education classes for lawyers.
