I view food as an enriching experience to have with others and a great way to explore different cultures—especially while traveling. I love trying new restaurants and continue to build my Yelp profile as a food enthusiast.
I find it quite satisfying to perform in-depth research and analysis on various legal questions and then form sound conclusions on how the law applies to clients’ cases. By looking at the big picture, identifying how a specific issue fits into a broader context, and determining the unique and differentiating aspects of each matter, I can help our team make highly informed decisions and begin building an advantageous case narrative.
