About Me: I am tenacious and love to learn new things. I am honest and have a great sense of humor. I am good at managing time and resources, having done it for 13 years in my business. I believe that a lawyer is both an advocate and a community educator about society's rights and responsibilities. We are not just "facilitators" as some would have us labeled.
