“I’ve worked for both individuals and large companies, but I much prefer working on behalf of individuals affected by others’ negligence. Both in law school and now, I’ve always been driven by the passion to become the lawyer that I’d want to hire for myself if I ever needed legal help. So, I treat my clients and their legal matters as if I was the one in their shoes.”
