When I was a young man, my uncle represented people who had been injured due to the negligent acts of others. Sometimes the harm was caused by corporations putting profits ahead of safety. In many cases, I learned that corporations took short cuts resulting in horrible accidents where innocent lives are destroyed or forever changed. As a young man, I watched my uncle passionately represent those victims and I vowed that someday I would be a lawyer protecting the rights of personal injury victims. In 1991, I became a lawyer with a personal injury law firm. Since then, I have practiced law with the knowledge that it is a privilege to be a member of this honorable profession. The hours are long and our cases are often complex and challenging. I cannot help but experience the hardships that my clients endure. I will never forget that I am privileged to serve and represent my clients. I am inspired by the generations of lawyers who taught us and continue to inspire us to serve our clients and our proud legal tradition.
