Value to Clients

“Although transactions can appear to be straightforward, the reality is that they are often more complicated once you get started on the details. It is usually less expensive to retain a lawyer to assist with a project at the outset than it is to hire a lawyer to fix problems later on.”

Outside the Office

Paul tries to keep up with his drawing and painting. He also enjoys downhill and cross-country skiing, hiking, biking, and travel.
