Every task I undertake as a lawyer is an opportunity to exceed my client's expectations. I best serve my clients by listening to their needs before offering advice, and by addressing each problem thoughtfully, skillfully, and efficiently. I feel extraordinarily blessed to practice law, and I am always mindful that it is my clients who enable me to do so.
