Personal Note

I enjoy investigating facts and researching the nuances in the law to create and tailor my strategies for each client. Practicing law gives me the opportunity, to read, write, and argue, which are already all my favorite activities.

I read somewhere of two men that were putting logs down for a railroad, and one said, "I am tired of putting logs down." The other said, "Is that what you are doing? I am building a railroad." I have a vision that guides me in all my endeavors, whether in my practice or personal life. I ask myself what the vision is, and how I can apply myself with passion to achieve it.
