A practical approach to solving legal disputes, a commitment to understanding the client’s business model and culture, a thorough analysis of the relevant factual and legal issues in a case, and a general responsiveness to email and telephone inquiries.
Outside the Office
Born in Jinan, China, Linda moved to the United States when she was three years old. A long-time Florida resident, she loves the year-round outdoor weather and loves to hike and cycle. In her spare time, she spends time with family and friends, who likely do not share in her enthusiastic enjoyment of reality television.
Successfully representing a client means not only analyzing all the factual and legal issues in a case, but also truly understanding the client’s business objections and corporate culture.
