BUSINESS LITIGATION AND EMPLOYMENT LAW
I don’t do everything. I don’t handle personal injury claims, criminal matters, divorces, real estate transactions, bankuptcies, etc. (I can refer you to excellent lawyers who do these things). I would rather be great at a few things than okay, or worse, at everything. Employment and business law are very complicated. There are numerous state and federal statutes, regulations, guidelines, and countless court decisions. A lawyer cannot stay on top of it all by dabbling in the fields. You have to live it and breath it every day. See my blog at www.damnedif.com to see my dedication to my limited fields.
