A bit about me as your business partner,
I am a business partner first and a lawyer second. I believe that I can best serve your needs if I have a true understanding of your business and objectives. I provide practical, common sense advice and know that you are looking for partnership not an obstructionist. I learned very early it is always easiest to say "no" and that is why many lawyers answer with that. I prefer to outline your options and give a risk assessment along with my recommendation, allowing you to make the best decision possible. However, when circumstances dictate the need for a no, that's what you will hear, without any sugar-coating and with definitive reasoning.
