Client approach:

“I try to treat clients the way I would like to be treated.  Therefore, I try to be as transparent, easy to reach, and communicative as can be.  I thoroughly investigate and advocate for each case, giving each one the time and thought necessary and beyond, no matter the “size” of the case.”
