Our clients deserve accurate and insightful responses, on time, every time. I strive to ensure that our clients feel as confident and comfortable calling me for assistance as they would anyone inside their own organization.

My goal is to provide exceptional service to our clients. With years of experience in government enforcement matters, I provide a unique perspective to clients that are facing government enforcement matters, as well as those wanting to stay out of the government’s crosshairs while also achieving their business objectives.
