Integrity is defined as “being consistent in ones actions and values.” Because of my strong Christian faith, I treat all of my clients the way I want to be treated; with honesty and truthfulness. If you do not need a certain document or plan I will not tell you otherwise. I will work with you so we can together determine what is best for your situation and you, the client, will make the ultimate decision.
I approach Estate Planning from the Biblical perspective that what we have is not ours. Rather everything belongs to the Lord and he has entrusted us with it while we are here on earth.
My late Torts Professor told us on the very first day of new student orientation that the “practice of law is an honorable profession. One in which we should serve our clients with unwavering devotion.” I strive to fulfill that high calling.
As an attorney I am held to high ethical standards and I carefully insure that I am well within the law in all that I do. You can find these ethical standards here:
One of the most abused rules that attorneys violate is failing to keep the client reasonably informed of their case or file. I follow the “24 hour” rule. This means I try my best to return all phone calls and email with-in a 24 hour time period.
In addition, I vow to be upfront and honest about my fees. I will not begin work until we have both agreed on a fee and the client has returned to me a signed engagement letter. If at any time during my engagement you have a question about my fee, please let me know and I will provide you with a statement detailing my work and fees earned up to that point.
Commitment is a word that I do not take lightly. Throughout my life I have made several commitments; two of which take top priority in my life. First, I am committed to serving my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Second, I am committed to my wife and children to be the best husband and father that I can. Third, I am committed to providing my clients with the service and expertise that they deserve.
I want to earn your trust and respect, and assist you in meeting your needs and goals. The only way I know to do that is to serve you with integrity, professionalism, and commitment.
