A Letter to My Future Clients

Fifteen years ago when I became an attorney, I knew I would love every minute. I’ve since dedicated my life to my work, constantly pushing myself and finding ways to become a better attorney. My passion is to learn everything I can about my client’s world so that I can become their voice and push their case to success. I believe my clients deserve to have the best and I strive to deliver it to them.

When I was young, my parents welcomed guests into our home from all backgrounds who had views that were not always the same as ours. This taught me to be compassionate to every person who sits in front of me. I also grew up where nothing came easy, this instilled in me hard work and how to overcome challenges. When doors closed, I created my own path. This made me a positive-thinking person who wasted very little time on being angry and focused on how to get the job done. Today, you will see that I prefer to smile and bring others up, not to put others down.

Growing up in multicultural cities and having constantly moved across borders gave me an international mentality at a very young age. I see what’s in front of me on the road but immediately envision all the possibilities miles away. I tend to think outside the box. This global perspective ultimately connects me with people.

Paramount to me is being an honest attorney. This means keeping my word. This means ensuring that my client’s time and finances are not wasted, even a large corporate client. I want my clients to have peace of mind and never regret their decision to invest in an attorney.

I believe at our core, we as people across the world have more in common than we do differences. We feel pain the same way and we feel joy the same way. We should all have the freedom to love who we want and travel where we desire.

I am excited that you are considering our law firm and we can’t wait to meet you!
