A versatile and client-focused attorney, Raymond is a member of the Business Litigation, Real Estate and Family Law practices. His clients include businesses, municipalities, landowners and families. Raymond enjoys taking the time to assure his clients understand the complexities of their cases and the available options so they can make informed decisions.
Government and Real Estate: As a municipal attorney, I represent local government units such as towns and cities on matters relating to infrastructure, public records requests, zoning and land use, and parks and recreation development. I also enjoy working with local governments and public utilities on various utility projects, such as land and easement acquisitions and their related funding to ensure infrastructure projects are successfully completed. Additionally, I work with private landowners on their property matters, whether it is rezoning or seeking a variance, to partitioning their property.
Litigation: I enjoy helping businesses and individuals solve their problems in and outside of the courtroom. My litigation practice focuses on guiding and helping my clients navigate their particular case. Developing a relationship with my clients is fundamental to understanding their needs. I focus on each client’s objectives to ensure we aim at their desired outcome. It is crucial that my clients understand their options and risks so they may choose the direction of their case. When necessary, I also enjoy working with clients on their appellate needs.
I appreciate the intricacy of family-type litigation such as adult guardianships, dissolution, and adoption cases. It can be very taxing for the responsible family-member or friend to care for another, whether thru an adult guardianship or a contested adoption, so I aim to spend time with my clients to allay their concerns and understand their needs during and after litigation.
Healthcare: Healthcare Law and its compliance are complex matters in today’s fast-moving world. I work with my healthcare clients on HIPAA compliance and related litigation, to ensure they are protected at a time when Protected Health Information is simply a finger tap away. Healthcare entities, whether hospitals or small counseling practices, receive an increasing number of requests for their confidential information. I enjoy educating my clients on their responsibilities under state and federal law by creating and helping implement procedures to safeguard their data. I also help my clients with their business-to-business transactions, such as their Business Associate agreements.
Developing technologies continue to shift how attorneys work and litigate. Technological advancements are changing the world at an incredible pace. These changes impact everything, from the creation of evidence, how business is conducted and to litigation. As the practice of law continues to evolve, embracing technology is necessary. Staying ahead of the curve is essential to protecting our clients' interests and better serving their needs.
