I have been unwilling to write about my accomplishments and results. It’s not because I don’t have many. In fact, they quite simply dwarf most lawyers in my field: I’ve been fighting for 25 years, and fighting tough and fighting smart.
I have been unwilling to list out case results because my energy goes into achieving case results for my clients every single day, including today. My work is every day. We are relentless.
I have won murder trials and assaults and rapes, in fact, won all kinds of cases that are, from the outside, both big and momentous, and others seemingly small. But on the inside of a case, when it’s my client and me speaking about his or her case, every case is big. Every case is meaningful.
Murder trials. Rape trials. Assaults. Drugs and guns. I’ve fought and won big cases in all kinds of ways: trials, motions, mitigation and negotiation.
But I want to let you know that seemingly small cases have been among my most meaningful. The young doctor who makes a mistake that could derail her career, the husband and father of three who makes a terrible decision that puts the family’s future on the line, the fight that got out of control that now separates lovers. These cases mean just as much to me than cases that appear in the news.
When I find myself with a little spare time, I don’t write about what I have done, but I often think about the clients whose lives I’ve helped get back on track and I reflect with gratitude that they entrusted their cases to me.
Time between cases is spent working for my other clients cases, not trying to convince other people to hire me.
Almost all my clients have always been by word of mouth. But those people who don’t know me and my work need to know about what my office has done and can do, so I will start the process of writing about them briefly.
But a results page doesn’t tell the full story of HOW great results were achieved, and that process to me is more important, because results follow the process. The process of what we do has taken 25 years of constant work and dedication to be what it is. To tell that story would fill a volume.
