The common perception about attorneys and law offices is that they are stuffy, formal people and places. As a transaction practitioner in real estate, estate planning and business, I purposefully designed my office just the opposite. While it is formal enough to make it clear that we deal in essential life matters, we made it welcoming, inviting and comfortable.
The matters we handle have enough pressure on their own. A big part of my job is to put people at ease. I do that so that they will be comfortable with asking any questions they may have and so that I can educate them as we address and attend to the matters before us.
