As a first-generation Greek American schooled in the importance of a strong work ethic, I developed a simple philosophy for success: Do a good job and everything else will follow. As a partner at WB&G I thrive on the breadth of issues we provide counsel on, not only in our litigation practice, but also in our transactional work and our involvement in new business endeavors.
