I've always had an inquisitive nature and a commitment to standing up for my beliefs – two traits that serve me well as an attorney. I pride myself on my ability to cultivate relationships, whether with clients, colleagues, or opposing counsel. I'm a researcher by instinct, and I always aim to learn as much as I can so that when I speak, clients can be confident in my guidance. In matters where we serve as advisors as well as advocates, every day is different than the one before. I relish the endless opportunities to learn that this discipline provides.
