Gary’s mission is to improve his client’s lives in the midst of the difficult legal process.  In big ways through learning, teaching, healing, discovery and zealousness.  In small, personal ways through human connection.   But in all ways, to improve their lives.  




No matter what area of law is involved, the client’s goals are always paramount and it is important to closely to partner with clients to empower them to achieve those goals.  Gary takes a holistic, client-first approach to each client and case and believes that an attorney-client relationship should be more like an amicable partnership rather than an arm’s length business transaction. Client’s are provided with a balanced perspective and solid judgment, with quality legal services coupled with caring, results-oriented guidance.   Creative strategies and non-traditional approaches to litigation are always considered and implemented when appropriate. While Gary always strives to resolve cases when possible, sometimes you cannot.

With over 40 years of courtroom experience, Gary has routinely litigated cases for his clients and has the knowledge and skill to serve as effective trial counsel, providing quality, dedicated and uncompromising advocacy on their behalf. Achieving optimum outcomes for clients requires steadfast adherence to core values; it is important to Gary that clients know that he values open communication, integrity, and an understanding of each client’s unique goals and concerns.




No one wants to pay unnecessary legal expenses. Alternatives to litigation, including creative solutions, preventive considerations, mediation, arbitration, early mutual evaluation, alternative dispute resolution, and collaborative law are an integral part of the options that are offered to clients. Clients are provided with a balanced perspective and solid judgment; creative strategy and non-traditional approaches to litigation are considered when appropriate. Because litigation can be prohibitively expensive, it is often wise to avoid litigation when possible.
