As a result of my upbringing, I have the natural ability to walk into a room, read it, and effectively persuade my audience with reason, empathy, and confidence. This is exactly what every litigator needs to do whether they are speaking with a client, opposing counsel, judge, or jury. As the first person in my family to go to law school, I am enthusiastic to be a member of the legal community, excited to help our clients solve any problem presented, and proud to be a part of the culture of excellence fostered at McGlinchey.
