JOANNA M. HABAN*
I believe in people being empowered to decide what happens in their lives, even when life has other plans.
While I am considered the “soft touch” of the firm, I still fight for my clients’ rights and interests. Whenever appropriate, I steer my client towards mediation or other alternate dispute resolution mechanisms to avoid the time and cost associated with a court action. However, I recognize when court action may become necessary and will proceed with whatever is necessary to protect my clients’ rights.
I take the time to understand what drives each and every one of my clients. I ask tough questions they would rather avoid to shed light on what is motivating them. This way we are always on the same page and working towards the same goal.
At the end of the day, it is my desire to help clients regain control in their lives that pushes me to keep doing what I’m doing.
