Why did you chose to be an attorney? When I was a child I learned that my grandfather went to law school and had to withdraw in his final year due to family and financial hardship. Since learning this and growing up around his legal mind I had a desire to fulfill his legacy by finishing what he started, so I went to the law school he attended and completed his journey.
What have you enjoyed about being an attorney?
I enjoy helping people navigate tough and complex situations in their lives. Being an attorney allows me to hear interesting stories and the opportunity to touch multiple aspects of people’s lives.
Why CJLW? What really impressed me about CJLW was the wealth of knowledge in this seasoned law firm, the oldest existing firm in the state. Also, the moment I met the first attorney to the last, each one portrayed the kind of professionalism that I want in my practice. These are two big reasons I joined CJLW.
Hobbies? I enjoy sports, especially watching my Miami Dolphins lose year after year. I also enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sitting around campfires, going to the beach, and exploring new places to eat.
Memorable Trip? My most memorable trip was my honeymoon. I was blessed to go to Fiji with my wife. In this tropical paradise we went kayaking between the Fijian islands, zip-lining through the mountains, and snorkeling through coral reefs. We also got to experience the Fijian culture including a kava ceremony, drinking a root that numbs your tongue and tastes like dirt! It was the trip of a lifetime enjoying the beauty of all the islands had to offer while soaking up the Fijian sun!
