“Every client who contacts a lawyer has a problem that they need help with. It is my job as a lawyer to fully understand the depth and nature of the problem and how that affects my client. It is my absolute privilege as a lawyer to be able to assist my clients in finding solutions that deal with their problem and make a positive impact in their life”. Soren Bakic
