A paragraph describing interests when not billing or blogging: When I’m not working, you can find me playing violin, reading, or spending time by the lake. I also love sharks and scuba diving, so there’s a good chance I’m working on another scuba certification or planning my next dive trip.
Best Thing About Being a Lawyer: The best thing about being a lawyer is advocating for justice on your client’s behalf. Attorneys possess a special set of skills, and I truly appreciate being able to use those skills to give my clients a voice.
