…when people meet me for the first time and learn that I am a lawyer, many are surprised. Their expectation is that lawyers are “flashy, slick operators” – and that’s just not who I am. I like to think my calm and caring demeanor and desire to educate and truly do the right things for my clients will set me apart from the stereotypical lawyer. Being to some extent the “anti-lawyer” has its pitfalls. Let me give you some examples … One of my law firms areas of focus is Estate Planning. I’m in competition with the “do it yourself on-line” resources all the way up to up to and including the big law firms that give the clients “just what they ask for” – (not what they need). On one end of the spectrum, you get what you pay for … the cheapest possible “estate plan“. But here’s the problem … most of those “plans” are inadequate and truly do not address all of the needs of the “virtual client” … and guess what – the virtual client will never know or be able to rectify the problem because they’re dead before anyone finds out. The responsibility to get the estate straightened out then falls to loved ones … at more legal expense typically than doing it right in the first place (!). Never mind that this time should be reserved for allowing the family to grieve. Have you ever had a Sam Kinison moment? Remember the comedian who used to punctuate his jokes by screaming the punch line? The client will never know BECAUSE THEY’RE DEAD! But this is no joke! Never mind that his estate was a shambles, this is all too often the reality of “cheap, on-line” solutions. At the other end of the spectrum is the client that says “Can you draw me up a will” … and that’s exactly what the lawyer does … without understanding or explaining the full scope of the clients’ estate. I call this “the path of least resistance” type of law firm … they’ll make a bit of money, but guess what … if it is not completely adequate the client will never know BECAUSE … you get the idea.

For as long as I can remember, I have been helping people. As a young man, I travelled with my family throughout Mexico giving food and clothing to the poorest of the poor. I later studied to be a church pastor; however I found my true calling when I became a paramedic and discovered the difference I could make in people’s lives ministering to their physical, mental, and emotional injuries and illnesses. I also discovered that I loved to teach, and spent nearly as much time training medical professionals as I did treating patients.
