About Gary P. Wolfe

What do you most enjoy about working with your clients?

The most enjoyable part of working with clients is in problem solving complex issues. At times those issues may arise in the context of litigation, but more frequently we work with clients in the arena of commercial law to avoid the necessity of an adversarial proceeding.

What are you most proud of?

From a professional standpoint, I am most proud of the long-term relationships that have been maintained over the past twenty-two years. Client loyalty is a report card on doing your job and to maintain these relationships for such a long time tells me we are providing a service that is appreciated.

What do you feel particularly passionate about?

It seems counter-intuitive as a lawyer, but my passion is in teaching. Professionally I believe this manifest itself in communication with the client; in identifying, explaining and resolving legal issues. Personally, I have had the pleasure of working with young people for the past 25 years as teacher, mentor and coach and have found those rewards to be extremely meaningful.
