My inspiration in law practice has been what I know we can do with law. I have thought of law and its application as an interesting piece of a puzzle and a tool for daily living. However, in the course of practicing law I realized that law is far more than a puzzle that could guide our daily lives. The words of Roscoe Pound that law is a means of socio-engineering became flesh and made a more practical meaning to me. Law is the lifeblood of our society. What we do with law can either make or mar lives. Society either stands with law or falls with or without law. This has shaped my view on how law ought to be applied.
Outside law, my life is centered around family and the game of soccer. I like playing and watching soccer. Table tennis is also another favorite.
