Personal Note

I was drawn to practice law because I wanted to understand what rules actually applied and not just what someone has claimed. I would sum it up as legal self-defense (i.e., jiu-jitsu for the law).

If I weren’t an attorney, I’d probably be an engineer. I like spending my time designing and actually building new ideas. Building the various projects helps to see if the idea is any good and allows other people to see what I had intended.
