Why I Became an Attorney:

Growing up, I always felt the need to understand the reasons behind things being asked of me and to constantly challenge the status quo. This would often lead the adults in my life to say, “You would make a great lawyer someday!” As I grew older, I began to admire the legal knowledge that attorneys possessed, their ability to think differently, and the important role they play during difficult life situations.

I became a lawyer because I wanted to contribute to society in a meaningful way and help others through their legal problems. I enjoy the practice of law because it always challenges me to grow and it is rewarding to be able to use my knowledge to help others.
