Why did you become an attorney?

I've always been business minded and assumed I would fit somewhere in the business world.  After college, I wanted to continue learning and bettering myself.  I became an attorney because I thought it would differentiate me from the rest of the business world.  Because I was pursuing a business career, the natural next academic step would have been to obtain a masters in business degree (MBA).  While looking into the various options, it occurred to me that a law degree (JD) would differentiate me somewhat, from the rest of the business world and give me a competitive advantage.  I knew I could always obtain an MBA in the future.  

After experiencing law school, I realized I could put my education to good use in the business world AND practice law.  I started law school with no expectation of practicing law.  I love the practice and being an attorney.

What experiences (work and personal) help you to be a better attorney?

I have a business mindset.  Business and finance are in my blood.  I've been an entrepreneur as long as I can remember.  I relate with people in general and even better with business people.  At all times, I have active business interests outside of the law.  One of my favorite things to do is to apply business methods from other industries, to my law practice.  I've failed and I've succeeded in various ventures.

What makes your law firm unique?

I apply practical solutions to legal issues.  I recognize and can apply different approaches successfully.  Whether it is a complex or simple solution.
