I was initially drawn to workers' compensation practice because it is an area of the law that can affect everyone. The law and content of our cases evolve with the progressing demands of society as new technology and job demands are created. What I love most about workers' compensation defense practice is the ability to form lasting relationships with clients as we work together on a variety of cases.
If I weren't an attorney, I'd probably be a librarian. Books and reading have always been a passion of mine and I almost always carry a book with me to help pass any idle waiting time. When not working, I enjoy practicing yoga and watching movies. During weekends, I can be found attending local events and shows or on one of the many hiking trails throughout the Bay Area.
