What does being a Fellow mean to you?
Being a Fellow allows me to support the mission of the ABF, which is to promote justice for all. I was a big fan of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and her work with the ABF has been very inspirational.
Where were you born and raised?
Why did you decide to pursue a career in law?
I am a natural born advocate, so I pursued a career in law because it allows me to be a client advocate. I also am exposed to various industries, work with diverse clients, and learn about different businesses. It is an intellectually stimulating profession, which allows me to constantly learn and grow. Also, I love the drama of the courtroom. Thus, I became a trial lawyer.
If you hadn’t pursued a career in law and academia, what career would you have chosen?
What do you do in your free time?
Anything else you’d like to share with us?
I believe that all lawyers should give back to the community, and the ABF offers that opportunity.
