What inspired you to become a lawyer? And what did you do before becoming a lawyer?
I was inspired to become a lawyer because I wanted to help people. That sounds like the oldest story in the world, but sometimes old stories stick around because they are true. For me, that was absolutely the case, and I don’t believe I’m unique in that regard. I think a large number of people pursue a career in the law to make a difference in the lives of people and in the communities we call home. I went straight from college to law school, so my entire professional career has been devoted to the practice of law.
