Well I was a psychology major in college, and my third year, I enrolled in a constitutional law course, and I realized that’s what I wanted to do. When you combine my background in psychology with doing trial practice and litigating cases on behalf of injured people, it really meshes well.
The passion that we have for our cases is that we know while we’re representing an individual, our cases often have a broader effect on society. And that’s pretty powerful. We’re here to provide a remedy or compensation for our client, but you actually speak for the community that you’re not going to tolerate a particularly negligent act or that a person’s life is worth a certain amount. That’s an important message that we convey in our trials, and it gets back to the fact that we’re passionate about what we do for our clients as well as what our clients’ cases do for the broader society.
