“To me, a lawyer is basically the person that knows the rules of the country. We’re all throwing the dice, playing the game, moving our pieces around the board, but if there is a problem the lawyer is the only person who has read the inside of the top of the box.”
– Jerry Seinfeld
As a practicing Counsel, in dealing with matters concerning various fields of disputes, has permitted her a thorough outlook on both sides of a dispute and the ideal conducive strategy.
Personally, she favors the route of an amicable resolution. She attempts to fairly assist the parties to achieve an amicable end, rather than a protracted abortive litigation.
