I chose to be a lawyer because I have a genuine desire to help people navigate through their most stressful times, especially when facing the challenges of a lawsuit. As someone who not only enjoys but excels in legal research, writing, and advocacy—so much so that I have the privilege of teaching these skills at my alma mater—I am driven to use these skills to advocate for my clients effectively and seek favorable outcomes on their behalf. However, my approach goes beyond the traditional role of a lawyer. I take a practical, modern approach to the issues my clients face, ensuring that I provide innovative solutions tailored to their unique circumstances. As their ‘counselor,’ I understand that my support doesn’t end with representing them for a lawsuit; I am committed to building lasting relationships, supporting them through all aspects of their legal journey, and ultimately making a positive impact on their lives.
