WHERE I AM AND WHERE WE’RE GOING

I t may sound trite, but I got into this field to help people. When I inventoried my skills and talents, it was clear that the best way to make a difference in the lives of others was to get into law. But when I started working as an attorney, I wasn’t dedicating my time to the cases and people I was most passionate about. Rather than standing up for individuals who had been wronged, I was arguing cases for well-off people and their first-world problems. I wanted to help clients avoid strife and stress. So that’s exactly what I did. I struck out in 2009 and opened my law firm. I latched my career onto my drive to succeed and let it take me where I am now. I believe I have an obligation to a higher power. Society needs what I can

I can’t even tell you why. The experience is just amazing and nothing like I thought it’d be. Watching Danielle work, she’s a role model I know I can trust.

Law is the one area where I will sweat the small stuff. Our firm prides itself on the standard of our representation. It’s not just what we stand for; it’s who we are. Come on by our office and let us show you that today.

If I’m not doing everything in my power to make a difference, I feel I’m slapping everyone who came before me in the face. It’s my duty, not my job, to do the best I can. It’s these moral values and principles that drove me to join Danielle.
