On why he became a lawyer:

"I've always enjoyed public speaking. Members of my family often identified me as one who helped them settle arguments so I thought this skill could be used in law. My father was an attorney.

I like using my knowledge and experience to help people as they move through important life-changing times. I like to give them the knowledge to make this transition easier and happier for them."
