1. What made you become a lawyer?


I wanted to blend my economics background with international law by building a career in the field of international development and maybe get involved with an agency like USAID.  While I sure am far from that path, I still find my work rewarding and I enjoy applying the qualitative thinking to issues like alimony, child support, taxes, and business valuations.

1.       What made you become a lawyer?    


I had watched the TV Show, 'Owen Marshall, Councelor at Law' and had really loved it. Also, both my father and grandfather pushed me to be a professional of some kind. The medical profession was out as I don't even like to give blood (even today!). That left me with two options: accounting and the law. Although I am decent with the numbers, I coulnd't see myself running them all day. Hence, the law.

1.       What made you become a lawyer? 


It was a natural path for me, as I am a son of a lawyer. Also, I have always enjoyed solving puzzles and helping others when possible, both of which are useful in my profession.  


2.       What will be the biggest challenge for the next generation?


Work-Life balance. They might be better at it than we were.


3.       What is the most interesting case you’ve ever had?

Mediation has become a popular tool for resolving medical malpractice claims.


Trials of medical negligence suits are inefficient. They require tremendous resources and the adversarial aspect of a trial actually impedes the exchange of significant information between the parties. It can easily be twice or three times longer to resolve a medical malpractice claim through a trial versus a mediated settlement.
