How do you introduce yourself to others?

I am a trusted business advisor serving business owners in all industries, ranging from agriculture to manufacturing, to advance their goals related to corporate matters, commercial transactions, succession planning, real estate, and employment issues.

What is the most positive/memorable experience you’ve had as a lawyer?

There are too many to count! However, I would say it’s particularly rewarding helping a client through a difficult negotiation – whether it’s a complex deal, one that requires some creativity, or just a tough opposing party. The most memorable experiences are those where we find a good outcome and the client is happy.

What do you like about what you do for a living? What lights you up?

The best part of my job is finding great solutions for clients and getting to work with so many smart, kind people.
