About

My story:

I learned early on that corporate lawyers are not set up to serve their clients very well. For starters, the hourly billing system prevents clients from calling or connecting with their lawyers until they had a very big problem. Not only that but it also motivates the lawyer to be inefficient and leaves most of the power in the lawyer's hands.

I decided to do things differently.

My mission:

I want my work to be characterized by real relationships, real talk, real conversation and real work with smart and innovative clients.

My core values:

Trust Ethics Honesty Family

My goals:

One of my goals is to support and counsel 10 new up and coming and innovative startups in 2021.

Fun facts:

> I lead a first-of-its-kind deal for the securitization of music royalties of the British rock band, Iron Maiden. This involved research to understand the relevant international laws, complex payment systems, and contracts for the music royalty business.

> I am helping a blockchain company navigate the unchartered territories of creating their own currency while at the same time supporting an innovative telehealth company do something that no one is trying to do.

> I have 17 grandchildren....and I know all their names.

I want to learn more about:

Wonderful talk with Howard :-)
