What is your favorite thing about the law?
I really enjoy getting to know my clients, learning their goals, their businesses, and how they operate. A big reward for me in practicing law is the sense of accomplishment when the client’s goals are met.

What was your first job?
I worked the graveyard shift at the Circle K convenience store on Belmont Boulevard.

What are your hobbies?
Exercise, music, movies, and reading. Also, I try to get to the beach as much as possible.

What advice would you give to a young student in law school?
In practicing law, always, always, always do your best. You owe it to your client, and you never know who is watching.
