"I became a lawyer to serve...to protect individuals, families and their family businesses. I have always wanted to make the law accessible...to serve as both a translator for complex provisions and a creative interpreter finding new ways that traditional legal principles can be applied to my clients’ current circumstances. To be a good lawyer, you have to be an avid reader, part detective, teacher, story teller and coach. I work every day developing these skills.”
