He truly cares about the work he does for his clients and it is obvious that they sense this when you hear the kind words of praise they offer about him...He is very committed and cares about each group and activity he is involved in, but I would have to say that being a Shrine clown is close to the top of his list…The Shriners Hospitals are also very near and dear to his heart…It is also very evident how much he loves his wife and children and is proud of them…my attorney makes it a priority to be there for his son and family…In so many ways, he puts others before himself.”
