I began my legal career as an associate with a small private practice before opening the doors of Starrett Law Firm in January 2009. It was crazy timing. The economy was in the throes of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. My wife and I were expecting our first child. So starting a business made complete sense. Well… not exactly, but I truly felt God calling me toward a bigger purpose. Since then, driven by the personal experience of losing my father to a massive stroke, I have had the privilege of helping hundreds of clients better prepare for twists and turns in life and business. My hope is to help many more.
