Mr. Watson brings his experience and training to bear on each of his cases. He focuses on understanding clients’ and adversaries’ goals and seeks to use litigation to resolve root problems to address his clients’ real-world needs.

In each case, Mr. Watson seeks the best outcome, putting the client first.
When not at work, Mr. Watson enjoys spending time with his daughter and volunteers in community education programs.
