What is your biggest accomplishment this year?
I have been involved in two very high net worth divorce cases this year and I was able to successfully resolve the cases. Both cases were incredibly labor intensive and I learned a lot about improving time management so I could be an effective advocate for my clients.
What inspired you to get involved in the legal profession?
I was inspired to get involved in the legal profession to help people. Some days this is few and far between but once in awhile you have the opportunity to help someone who really needs your help. I have the freedom and creativity to provide real and meaningful legal services.
