My Approach


“He who would do good to another must do it in Minute Particulars: general Good is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite, and flatterer, for Art and Science cannot exist but in minutely organized Particulars.”
William Blake

I began my law school admissions essay with this quote. I wrote that I wanted to be a lawyer in order to help others “in minute particulars.” I believed it then, and I believe it now.

I’ve been a student, scholar, and teacher of meditation practice for over thirty-three years, and a translator of Sanskrit and Tibetan Buddhist texts. I am grateful for my Harvard education, which gave me the tools to do these things. Through this path, I’ve come to see that my mission in life is to serve others. There are an infinite number of ways to serve others. Being a lawyer is my way.

To me, you’re not just a client; you’re a fellow human being. You don’t just have a case; you have feelings, opinions, and attitudes about your situation. A lawyer who doesn’t take note of your opinions and feelings is missing crucial information. He or she is less well equipped to meet your needs.

At Ronald E. Stiskin and Associates, we see each client who comes to us as a whole person. We listen. We take your opinions and feelings into account. We listen to everything you have to say about your case, whether “legally relevant” or not. The result: a more comprehensive, durable, and satisfying outcome.
