Q: What was the best business advice you received?
Never miss a local story.
A: Communication with your clients is the best customer service. Make sure that they are part of the process and they feel involved every step of the way.
Q: If you could choose another profession, what would it be?
A: Medical doctor. I like to make a difference and help people. I also want to do things that are worthwhile doing and, at the same time, intellectually challenge me.
Q: What is the biggest risk you’ve taken in your career?
A: Opening this law firm. I left a job that I’d been at for 17 years, earning a fixed salary, to then start a business ... which is now a little over a week old.
Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?
A: Israel. I’d love to see where it all started and my faith is very important to me. From there on to Scotland for the golf.
