Not all lawyers do all things.
I pose that no lawyer should do all things.
Some lawyers practice exclusively in one area of law. I am not conceptually against that notion, but don't think it best serves clients either.
I am reading a biography of Thomas Jefferson. One passage addresses his philosophy on the use of hours in the day. While in law school at William & Mary University, Jefferson committed the first few hours of the day to law, the early afternoon to philosophy or science, and two hours per day to exercising. His reasoning: one must have a multi-faceted existence and education base to be the best.
Jefferson's philosophy is the philosophy I subscribe to in my practice. 90% of my practice is in the areas of business law, real estate, and estate planning. There are significantly common and complimentary elements to these areas of law. It has been proven for me time and again that having experience and education in these overlapping, yet distinct, areas of law, permits me to best serve my clients.
Specialists have their place, but a multi-disciplinary practice is battle tested. If you believe my breadth of experience and education is a match for you, let's talk and see how I can help you.
