The SuperLawyers article (PDF) really encapsulates my life on the way to being a lawyer. It reflects, I'm sure, what many people have experienced in an effort to have a better life.

One of my jobs as a lawyer is to level the playing field between those that have and the have nots. This is something that is an article of faith for me.

To me, that is an honor and a privilege that I consider sacred because what I do for others, I do for me and those that will follow. SuperLawyers Article [PDF]
