Summary

If you’re looking at this site, you or someone you care about is probably dealing with (or about to deal with) something quite serious. Obviously, there are many fine lawyers you can hire or consult with but it’s important to work with an attorney who not only has the knowledge, skill, and determination to successfully protect your interests, but one you’ll be comfortable with – an attorney whose values and approach will be a good fit. So, in addition to my “official” qualifications (which you can read at the bottom of this page), here’s a short summary of what I believe, what drives me, and how I approach my legal practice. I grew up with nine siblings in a household where our parents worked hard to treat all of us equally. No one was better than the others and no one was favored over the others. We were also taught to see the world that way – to not play favorites and to not judge others. So fairness and treating people with respect are central to my personal value system. We were also taught to do our best at everything, whether it was school or hobbies or sports. “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.” Put simply, I’m driven by excellence, and I’m driven by it at a deep level. Finally, more than half of my siblings became accomplished team athletes. You can read more about my sports background here, but four highlights include: filing an action against UCONN under the then-new Title IX statute as an undergraduate to compel the creation of a woman’s soccer program, being selected as a Division I First Team All-American in soccer, being named to the first Women’s U.S. National Soccer team, and serving as Head Coach of the Yale Division I Women’s Soccer Team. I share this with you because that inner fire of competitiveness and teamwork continues to drive me as a lawyer. I bring these qualities to every client and every case I take because it’s who I am and how I practice law.
