My prior professional experience has paved the way for my transition into the practice of law. While living in the Washington, DC area for five years, I honed my negotiation skills in serving as an advocate for government contractors in complex price negotiations with the federal government on product and service contracts. The art of negotiation comes into play often in my practice, and whether working on a dispute settlement, separation agreement, divorce settlement, or directly with a district attorney in a criminal matter, my goal is to secure the best possible outcome for my clients.
After moving to Charlotte, NC, I worked with Wachovia Securities/Wells Fargo Advisors as a financial advisor. My experience there, combined with my degree in Business Administration from the Kenan-Flagler Business School at UNC-Chapel Hill, lends itself nicely to my law practice when discussing assets and retirement accounts with my Estate Planning clients, when assessing financial settlements in civil matters, and when working through financial documents in family law and divorce matters including child support, alimony, and equitable distribution cases. My time as a financial advisor also taught me the importance of protecting the interests of those I represent, listening closely to the needs of my clients, and the role communication plays in a trusted professional relationship.
The lessons and skills learned from previous experiences are the pillars of my law practice. The actual foundation of my law practice is following the golden rule. I understand that during tough times, people need and deserve accessible advocacy and personalized attention, and that any time a client calls or sends me an email, a response is anxiously awaited. I therefore make it a point to always keep my clients consistently updated on the status of their case, and to return all phone calls and all emails on the same day received...no excuses.
