Me in a minute

I love working with individuals around the world and listening to the stories of their lives

What I love most about my work is being helpful to my clients. I studied English literature at college, and before attending law school I worked in advertising and at a fashion magazine. I chose those professions because I like to write. Living in Manhattan being a top priority at the time (as it continues to be today) and writing and analysis being activities I enjoy, I determined that practicing law would be a good fit and a profession in which I could succeed and be happy.
