Why did you decide to become an attorney?
I became an attorney because I enjoy the challenges and excitement of preparing a case for litigation, and I truly enjoy helping clients through those difficult times.
What experiences (work and personal) help you to be a better attorney?
I believe it is imperative to learn from other attorneys and judges. I have been able to gain a tremendous amount of perspective on my personal injury cases by speaking with attorneys who practice in different areas of law. I also believe that being a member of legal associations such as the OAJ, CBA and OSBA greatly help me keep up to date on changes in the law as well as new strategies for my clients.
What made you choose your primary area of law?
I really enjoy helping individuals and families through difficult times, and (when necessary) helping them fight large corporations and insurance companies.
