Practice made Personal®

Jerry  Holisky

"I take pride in being a business adviser who provides practical legal advice. This means I will help you find a way to do the deal – rather than tell you why you can’t. I particularly enjoy spending time in the boardroom. It helps me develop a personal relationship with the owners and management while learning about the client’s business."

"We make our practice personal both inside and outside the firm. Internally, our management team fosters a collegial and team oriented environment. And extending that personal approach outward, I get to know my clients well, spend time learning their concerns and expectations, and make sure they know they are not just a name on a file."
