To me, practicing law is a lot more than a job. I genuinely enjoy talking to the people who come to see me, and I like hearing about the obstacles they’re facing. Even when they’re feeling overwhelmed and frustrated by the legal system, I am able to show them that there are solutions to their problems — it’s just a matter of finding the right one, then fighting to make it work.
Often, when people first reach out to me for help, they are concerned that I will try to rush them or that I will be too busy to meet with them personally. I understand why those lawyer stereotypes exist, but rest assured, that’s not how I run things. I make time for my clients because I know how scary and stressful legal problems can be, and I want to reduce that anxiety as much as possible.
If you are one of the many people in West Virginia who dreads the idea of working with a lawyer, let me put your mind at ease. As your attorney, I will make sure you know that I am here for you. I will encourage you to ask questions and tell me about anything that’s bothering you, and I will keep you updated on your case as it progresses.
Don’t let the suit and tie fool you. I’m here to listen, and I want to help you through this.
