start quote symbolA good transactional lawyer should focus on the balance between negotiating the best deal possible for the client with being a facilitator of getting the deal done. Clients want their lawyer to be their advocates without introducing unnecessary friction into the process. My goal is to partner with the client to conceive of and implement creative solutions to unique issues in their transactions.end quote symbol
