"As an attorney, the work I do is complex, but my imperative is simple, and it's always the same: I help people. Whether I am assisting a local business owner with employment policies, working with a family going through a divorce, or representing a victim of discrimination at work, I want to help. For all my clients, that means finding effective, meaningful, real-life solutions to problems. That's important to me."
