Company: Icard Merrill
What was the best business advice you ever received?
Always treat every client as the most important I have because as far as the client is concerned his matter is the most important matter that I have. Another one is to always return phone calls as promptly as possible and certainly by the end of the day. I try to live by those rules.
If you could choose another profession, what would it be?
I am a board certified real estate attorney and shareholder of this firm but I'd be a real estate broker. I enjoy the real estate community and being part of Sarasota's growth and development.
What's the biggest risk you have taken in your career?
Joining the law firm of Icard Merrill. I was a solo practitioner with complete control over the decisions and direction of my practice. In 1994, I merged my practice with Icard Merrill. It turned out to be a great decision since it allowed me to work with other attorneys with specialties ancillary to my real estate practice.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?
Switzerland, I love skiing and I would love to have to opportunity to go to Switzerland, it's beautiful and challenging.
