“Most importantly, [my work] is about people – and people in need. That’s what keeps me invigorated everyday; wanting to get to work and wanting to help clients. Whether it’s a family in need, a client that is recently bereft or someone that is in a bind, confused and grieving, it’s very fulfilling for me to be able to help them get out of a bad spot legally”
