    Finding efficient, creative solutions to my clients' problems is the most exciting aspect of my work. In particular, my work in the financial services field, and particularly my representation of loan servicers, gives me the ability to work with my clients to structure negotiated resolutions that benefit my clients by avoiding protracted and costly litigation.
