a) Majored in Political Science in undergrad then three years at law school. Admitted to the bar in 1992

b) All types but the ones that are most common for small to medium business are contracts, employment law, and business litigation.

c) I represented a builder who was sued for allegedly building a defective house. It was interesting because the experts hired by the other side were well qualified but not telling the truth and misrepresented what the studies and reports they relied on actually said. Since I had their reports ahead of time and also the articles and studies they relied on I hired an expert of my own to prepare me for cross examination, which went very well. By the end of the testimony they were agreeing with everything I said because I caught them in several lies and had the articles to prove it.

d) Usually $350 an hour, although if they were regular clients I discounted that to $250 an hour after the first matter I handled for them.

e) Any time they are faced with a new area or are unsure about a legal question. Most businessmen get into trouble by relying on what other people tell them rather than spending a few dollars and asking an attorney.
