Since I was a child reading through my grandfather’s legal textbooks, I’ve been fascinated by the law as a tool that humans have constructed to help people with their problems. I really enjoy the theoretical analysis that the law affords. I thrive on the fast-paced, varied nature of my diverse litigation practice. Every day brings a new, exciting challenge.
