What’s the most important thing you do in your job?
Passionately advocating for my clients is the most important part of my job. It can be challenging at times, but so rewarding when you are able to get a favorable result for a well-deserving client.
What is one aspect of your profession you would like to change?
Attorneys do so much to help their clients, so I am disappointed when the public perception of attorneys is not the best. It is my personal goal to let the public know that lawyers actually care! A few bad “apples” should not spoil the bunch. I am surrounded and work with some of the best legal minds who also possess the most selfless hearts. Our profession should not get the bad rap that it often does.
