WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT? Over 12 years ago I met my best friend in an elevator in the Netherlands. Marrying her this past April is hands down my greatest accomplishment.

YOUR FAVORITE U.S. SUPREME COURT JUSTICE? Hard to top John Marshall. While the nation was grappling with how its institutions ought to function, he cultivated an independent role for the Supreme Court as the guardian and final arbiter of the Constitution, giving real effect to our system of checks and balances.

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN? I get the most enjoyment out of traveling. Experiencing other parts of the world has been instrumental in shaping who I am as a person and as a lawyer.

IF YOU HADN’T BECOME A LAWYER, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE? I probably would have been a journalist or high school history teacher.

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUNG LAWYERS? Pay fanatical attention to details. Sloppy thinking and execution makes it impossible to effectively represent your client. Appreciate the broader picture, too. Knowing why a statute or rule exists and how it fits with the body of law at issue illuminates nuances likely to govern the matter at hand.
