For 25 years of providing legal services in supplemental health I find that just as in medicine, in which it is best to prevent and maintain good health, the same practice is true in law as well.

Companies and people all have legal, contractual and business obligations.

As a lawyer my role is to help fulfill these obligations by offering legal advice and assist them in contracts by acting preventively adding a valued legal viewpoint. 

In the corporate environment I offer legal assistance in communication, both internal and external, providing an additional perspective to preexisting practices.

In addition to my legal practice I offer services and training in regard to Negotiation and Commercial Mediation.

My service is established to provide quality personal and professional transparency, integrity, ethics, commitment and respect towards all parties.
