WHAT THE PUBLIC SECTOR TAUGHT ME MY LAW JOURNEY

I was born and raised right here in this community. Since my mother founded the law firm over 20 years ago, we have seen many firms come and go and have witnessed the need for legal services in our community continue to grow. As a child, I saw my mother work long hours to assist her clients. While she was often late getting home, I saw the pride and joy she got from helping those in need. Looking back, it was her passion for the law that first fostered my interest in becoming an attorney and fighting to help others. I attended Winter Park High School and then headed to Emory University in Atlanta, where I studied political science to gain a better grasp of how our government works. After I graduated, I traveled back to Florida to study at Florida State University College of Law and obtain my law degree. When I graduated, I knew I needed courtroom experience to be able to fight for my clients and provide competent legal representation. While many of my friends went to corporate jobs, I was fortunate enough to land a job with the office of a public defender in Orange County. While some may not consider this to be a prestigious job, the experience it provided proved to be invaluable. Within the first few weeks on the job, we were taking cases to trial in front of a jury. We were forced to learn to be comfortable in a courtroom and to think on our feet. Many of my friends at corporate law firms wouldn’t step foot in a courtroom for several years and spent most of their time reviewing documents. Being able to take cases to trial has been priceless to our clients, as a trial is the great equalizer in our justice system. While I loved my time as a public defender and was able to help people, I knew it was time for the next phase of my career. I find it even more rewarding being able to take the skills I learned as a young attorney and use them to assist my clients at the firm today. Whether it be an injury case or a divorce, in my opinion, the client gets the best

"WHEN I'M NOT WORKING, YOU CAN USUALLY FIND ME PLAYING WITH MY 6-MONTH-OLD SON OR FLYING.”

result when we are ready, willing, and able to take their case to trial to seek justice on their behalf.

While we often work day and night for our clients, I believe it is important to disconnect, as well. When I'm not working, you can usually find me playing with my 6-month-old son or flying, since I have been working on my pilot’s license. These moments force me not to think about work, which is a much-needed reprieve. If you're ever in need of legal services or just have a legal question, please know that we're always here to help.
