What’s the most important thing you do in your job?
The most important thing I do in my job is to help people. People come to my office who have suffered devastating losses and injustice through no fault of their own … I have seen first-hand how I can help make a difference in my clients’ lives. There is no better honor.
What is one aspect of your profession you would like to change?
While the Courts are open and jury trials have resumed since the closures caused by COVID-19, the effects remain and continue to impact jury trials. The backlog of trials that could not go forward during the suspensions persists. While the Judiciary has taken great efforts to keep the Courthouse doors open, delays continue. Both sides of the bar need to come together to offer ideas and solutions to share with the Judiciary to help alleviate the backlog and ensure cases are timely tried.
