First, a little about myself. I am trial lawyer but I am also an immigrant, naturalized citizen, and United States Naval Officer.
I put myself through school delivering newspapers, working as a server, landscaper, pizza delivery driver, locker room attendant, mover, truck-loader, library assistant and numerous other jobs that taught me invaluable lessons about hard work and forged life skills that have been an integral part of my success as a litigator, in and out of the courtroom. I have a deep sense of gratitude, humility and pride born of my life’s unexpected path.
Faith is central in my life. Therefore, I believe that a spiritual connection is of paramount importance to my work. I also believe that to be an elite trial lawyer requires tremendous mental and physical stamina in order to outwork and outlast your opponents when the pressure is intense. I relentlessly work to sharpen my mind, body and spirit in order to build spiritual, physical and mental endurance. I love reading and am an avid triathlete as I find that swimming, biking and running for 140.6 miles builds both mental and physical toughness and resilience!
As your advocate, I will draw on all of this experience and stamina to endure, defend and advance your cause with everything I’ve got.
This is my promise to you.
