Me in a minute

I truly enjoy the international aspects of my practice

I have always loved reading and writing, and I wanted to be an author when I was a young child. In college, I sought out a career in which I would read and write on a regular basis. I decided to be a lawyer upon taking a Constitutional Law course in college; I enjoyed the lively discussions about the rights and liberties granted to us under the US Constitution (and the corresponding limitations on those rights and liberties). I'm so thankful that I took that course, as it led me to a career in which I read and write every day!

I spent a summer in college working for the US Department of State, and ever since that experience I have wanted to work with international persons and cross-border transactions. I truly enjoy the international aspects of my practice, especially meeting clients and families from many different backgrounds and cultures.
