Interview questions and answers:
Why did you decide to practice employment law?
I chose to practice employment law to protect the rights of employees. I believe that all employees are valuable and deserve a safe and positive work environment – and I will strive to achieve that end for each of my clients.
What was law school like? Did you have any second thoughts along the way?
Law school was three of the most challenging – yet rewarding – years of my life. I read and retained more information than I ever thought possible, and learned to analyze problems in a whole new way. While there were times that studying was simply exhausting, I was determined to persevere so that I could be an advocate for those who needed it.
Who or what inspired you to become an attorney?
Every week as a child, I was highly committed to pleading the case of why I deserved a candy bar in the checkout line at the grocery store. One time, my mother told me I’d make a good attorney someday (as she simultaneously set my Reese’s cup on the counter). Thus, my family often jokes that that was my motivation. However, as I grew up, I decided I wanted to be a lawyer so I could provide a voice for my clients in the often complex and confusing legal system.
