Why Do You Do What You Do?

“People. I love what I do because of the people; the clients, the potential clients, the employees, the vendors, the competitors…they all motivate me.”

First and foremost, I am a firm believer in our people; I believe that we have the BEST staff possible, not just for any law firm, but ANY business. They work with a purpose and they are passionate about what they do and how they do it. Without our people, I truly feel like we would be like most businesses that struggle to find their identity; our identity is our people.

I appreciate all of our clients and potential clients because I understand that there is an overwhelming amount of attorneys available to hire. I don’t let the wide availability of other attorneys distract me from realizing what others do not; behind every “client” is a person who needs help, who needs guidance and protection in one of their greatest times of need. My love and passion for what I do is ignited when I can show potential clients, current clients, and our team just how powerful our work is and how we make a difference every day.

I am confident that the thousands of people that have made the decision to trust Nave DWI Defense Attorneys to represent them is not misplaced and makes me ever the more determined to show the power of what we do by striving for the best possible result at the conclusion of every case. My goal is to make sure that all of our clients leave Nave DWI Defense Attorneys with the peace of mind that we protected, advocated and worked hard for them.

I appreciate all of our vendors that ensure we have all the products and services needed to ensure we provide the best for our employees and clients. Oddly enough, I also appreciate our competitors because at the end of the day, they motivate me to reach the highest standards to ensure we are innovative and that we continue provide a great place for our employees to work and grow. Clients, competitors, employees and vendors all make me realize every day just how much I love what I do and why it’s an experience that can’t be replicated anywhere else.
