Health & Technology Law Firm

Providing Excellence in Legal Services to Established Businesses, Emerging Companies and Individual Entrepreneurs

Practice Areas and Client Groups
Choosing an attorney is an important decision, whether you are in individual entrepreneur, emerging company or established business.  This section of the website is designed to provide an overview of the firm’s practice areas, and the types of clients and industries with which the firm has experience, in order to help you decide if the firm is right for you and your business needs.  However, this website should not be a substitute for a telephone consultation or in-person meeting.  We encourage you to contact us early in your decision-making process.  It is often more economical and effective to have legal counsel from the outset, than to have to go back and address issues that have arisen.
