Personal Note

What I love about practicing law is that it allows me to find real solutions to problems. Each case is unique and the law is constantly changing, so I have to always adapt and improve, as well. I like learning new things and finding innovative solutions to problems, and in the law there is always something new to discover.

Growing up, my dad would often take me and my three brothers camping, fishing, backpacking, white-water river rafting, any opportunity to get out of the city and experience nature in the great outdoors. On these excursions, I grew to love nature and of course, spending time with my dad. Now that I have my own kids, I take every chance I can get to give them what my dad gave me by showing them the wonders of nature in the National Parks and Forests in our own backyard.
