What do you enjoy about practicing law?
What I find most gratifying is the day of filing. At that point, I know I have exhausted all resources to protect my client. There is an unparalleled feeling of satisfaction and workman’s pride in that moment.
“An attorney is only as good as the value he provides his clients, which can take many forms—their success is my success.”
How do clients benefit from your experience?
The main value I provide is efficiently producing the work that needs to be done to enforce or defend our client’s rights. This involves quickly understanding what those rights are through legal research and devising practical strategies for achieving our client’s goals.
Why did you choose to join Farrell Fritz?
Farrell Fritz is the ideal learning environment for a young attorney to get incomparable experience and learn about different facets of the law. I was very impressed by the firm’s environment of collegiality and cross-collaboration, which encourages a pragmatic approach that is fast-paced and focused on the client’s goals.
How do you give back to the community?
On a pro bono basis, I represent individuals in administrative proceedings who are seeking to qualify for unemployment insurance. These individuals typically are unaware of their rights and would otherwise be unable to effectively represent themselves or pay for that representation. I firmly believe that by helping your neighbors, you are creating a community full of successful people and creating a better world in which to live.
