“The most rewarding aspect of practicing law is seeing the positive difference you can make in the lives of people who are suffering; I feel very strongly that the practice of law is an opportunity to help others. This drive to help others was instilled at an early age by my parents and further nurtured by my faith.”
- Michael Jordan
