If you were to ask the people who know me best to describe me in one word, the word that would probably come to mind is “driven.” I’ve always wanted to help people, I’ve always loved debating important issues, and I’ve always had a strong sense of justice. When I combined those factors, I realized at an early age that legal work was my calling. And so I worked hard to pave the way toward my chosen career. Beyond that, I took steps to ensure that once I got there, I would already be a force to be reckoned with in my field.
The first place you might see concrete evidence of my lawyerly ambition is in high school. There, I took an interest in debate and relentlessly pursued it, winning multiple tournaments, ranking as one of the top debaters in the state. As I progressed into college, and later, law school, my investment in my career path never let up. To this day, I’m always up for a good debate — at work or otherwise.
This background has served me well as a trial lawyer. I was ready for the courtroom as soon as I graduated from law school. Early in my career, I began representing clients as lead trial counsel in the coutroom. As a result of my experience and reputation, several other law firms have hired me to serve as lead trial counsel in their cases when they cannot reach a settlement.
Every great underdog story needs a guide and an advocate. When it comes to my clients’ cases, I take on both those roles.
