Personal Note

The law in the broadest sense is the result of trial and error, an attempt to codify beneficial public policy. Clearly the workers’ compensation system was put in place to rectify the adverse effects of workplace injuries. At the same time, that system was not intended to overcompensate workers for their industrial injuries. While those two public policy goals may seem to conflict, I find professional satisfaction in striking a fair and equitable balance between those public policy goals.

If I were not an attorney, I would have chosen a career in Software Engineering or as a Professional Golfer, with the former being far more likely. The software industry seems to only be gaining more relevance every day, for better or worse, and is rapidly changing our day-to-day lives. That prospect has professional appeal to me, to be on the cutting edge of technology. However, I would never seriously take a mulligan on my career choice and I am passionate about the law.
