As a Veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan and currently serving Army Reservists, it is a passion of mine to work with and support other Veterans. Through these pages I hope that my appreciation for my brothers and sisters at arms becomes apparent.
I divide my work with Veterans into three areas.
First, is the work I do with non-profit organizations committed to serving the Veteran community. First and foremost is Objective Rally Point (ORP), the Veteran networking breakfast I host every month. The information on these web pages will educate you on the causes and organizations which are dear to me.
Second, I am committed to educating and providing resources to Veteran entrepreneurs. The statistics are overwhelming, Veterans are not only the defenders of our democracy but Veteran owned businesses make up 14% of all the small businesses in the country. Without Veteran business owners this country would be in a desperate state and I will do anything I can do to encourage and assist Veteran business owners. My primary effort is through ORP, but I speak at various events and I will always make myself available to speak to a group of Veteran entrepreneurs.
Lastly, I love Veteran owned businesses as clients. I have some fantastic non-Veteran clients who I love. But I enjoy the dynamic of the shared experiences that I have with my Veteran clients. We speak the same language, understand the same risks and my Veteran clients very much appreciate that they do not have to explain themselves or apologize when talking to me as their legal counsel.
I encourage you to explore these pages for resources for Veterans and if you are a company looking for a Veteran owned company to team with or employ then please reach out directly to me and let me see if there is a company in my network that can meet your needs.
