How do you build successful client relationships?
For me, the key to a successful client relationship is open communication. It is vital to be accessible to your clients and to keep them as updated and informed as possible at every stage of the process. I take the time to address clients’ concerns, while working towards a favorable outcome.
“Success is doing everything within my power to obtain the best possible outcome for my clients.”

I have actively participated in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for over ten years, and while in law school, was a member of a student-run nonprofit that served underrepresented populations in New York City.
