From a young age I have been exposed to practicing law. Growing up, my father was an Assistant Prosecutor in Bergen County, New Jersey. Over the course of my childhood I had many opportunities to discuss and learn how the ideas of justice and compassion can both be applied to the practice of law. This foundation runs deep in my family and the call to service is strong. I have siblings serving in the armed forces and the police force. I felt that the best way for me to serve the community was to use my abilities and passion for the law to help as many people as possible.
The best part of my job is the chance, every day, to help people that have been disadvantaged and injured through no fault of their own. I love the daily interactions with my clients, whose bravery and strength never cease to amaze and inspire me.
As I mention above, I am invested in the compassionate, ethical, and service oriented practice of law. I don’t know that there was ever really a choice for me, having grown up with a lawyer for a father. I was always encouraged to pursue any path and passion that I chose, but the end result was inevitable. I love what I do and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I approach every personal injury case as if it were my first, last, and only. I realize that to the client every case is exactly those things. It would be a disservice to the client and my profession if I didn’t fight as hard as I can on every case.
I worked a full-time job supporting my family throughout my entire undergraduate and law school career. I strongly believe that this responsibility helped me learn to efficiently manage and prioritize my time and focus, which is invaluable in my position. This experience also created a strong work ethic that I carry to this day.
