Something I’m Very Proud Of…
Building the vibrant and creative core of our office. Through hard work and strategic planning, I have been able to realize my vision of all around excellence in a law firm. That begins with the people who work here, and we have the very best. I’m also proud of this website. I prepared the content and created the design. The chess pieces and boards are from my collector’s sets at home.
What I Love About My Work…
As the senior attorney and supervisor, a lot of my work is being a teacher, and it’s really rewarding to watch the young lawyers in the office grow and succeed. I also love the satisfaction of knowing that we have worked extremely hard on every case that we have taken, and helped thousands obtain justice. In many of our cases we represent the completely powerless against the most powerful, those victories are the most gratifying. When I leave my office, I know that I’ve spent the day working for the greater good.
