When did you decide to be a lawyer?

I took a class in college in communications that discussed various legal issues, including ethical debates on topics like euthanasia. It was one of the most interesting classes I took, and it sparked the legal debate interest in me. It was last semester of my senior year, and I then reconsidered what I wanted to do, taking a year off so I could study and take the LSAT.

What is the best part of your job?

It’s a toss-up between working with a great team here in the office and being able to help clients who have been injured just by doing their jobs. I think without a great team, it would be difficult to get great results for our clients.

What do you wish your clients knew about you?

In my own family, my grandfather, my great uncle, two uncles, and an aunt all worked in industrial jobs just like the clients did. I picture my clients as extended family. Also, I love dogs and the Astros.

What do you like to do outside of the office?

I love to be outside when the weather is nice, whether going for a walk or run, hanging out by the pool or gardening, I try to spend my weekends outside. If I’m stuck inside, I don’t sit still. I will find some project to do around the house or bake something.
