Since becoming a lawyer, I've learned how important this work is to every client

It's not often that you find a profession where the outcome of your work can – and often does – have a profound impact on the life of your client and his or her family. I am not afraid to go to the wall for my clients and to turn over every stone to fight for their rights. I grew up working construction each and every summer for my father. I learned valuable lessons from many weeks of working 80 to 100 hours, including not being afraid of working hard to reach your goals.
