Why I Do What I Do
I grew up thinking I was going to be a teacher. While at University of California, Irvine, I was encouraged by one of the Deans to take a course that was taught “just like law school, I think you’ll like it.” He was right! I knew at that point that I enjoyed the intellectual challenge of pursuing justice on behalf of real people with real problems.
Teaching is great, and I still enjoy working with eager students. But they move on, year after year. Clients, on the other hand, become like “family” for me. I stand in the gap for them, explain the options when things look horrible and the future is uncertain. I am the buffer between pain and justice. I am the one that can help make order out of chaos.
Over the years, I have represented all types of people and business of all sizes, with all kinds of problems, in various types of cases. Each case is different and presents its own challenge for the client and for the lawyer. I find enjoyment and satisfaction while working with clients to sort out the facts, apply the appropriate law, and seek the result that works fairness in that particular situation. I accept the trust given to me by my clients seriously and consider it a great privilege and high calling to serve within the justice system.
