Massachusetts Trademark and Litigation Attorney
In September 2003, after spending twenty-six years working for major law firms in Baltimore, Boston, and Worcester, and working for a large multinational corporation, I moved to a small town on Cape Cod and hung out the proverbial shingle. Why? Because I wanted to do the following:
- Give individuals and businesses the opportunity to obtain at affordable rates the same high quality legal services I previously provided large, deep pocket, corporate clients by tailoring my services to fit their unique needs and budgets and working in partnership to accomplish their objectives at the least possible cost to the client (without sacrificing, of course, quality).
- Practice law in a way that reflects my values: speaking the truth with love, respecting the dignity and worth of each individual, and believing that the forces of justice will triumph in the end because they are right and good.
In a practice that reflects my values, I provide effective and responsive representation for individuals and small businesses in several areas of the law for clients in the Cape Cod area, including trademark and copyright, estate planning, civil litigation, general business law issues (contract drafting, setting up corporations and LLCs, promissory notes, buying or selling a business), and divorce. My strength is in trademark and copyright law and factually complex litigation matters. If a matter requires expertise I don't have, I will try to refer you to a lawyer who does. (My motto, after 42 years in practice, is, "I know what I know. I know what I don't know. And I know the difference between the two.") If I think a matter will cost more in terms of legal fees than it is worth on a risk/reward basis, I won't hesitate to tell you. Contact me to learn more about me or my practice or to arrange a consultation.
