1. What made you become a lawyer?
In college (in the South), I studied psychology and sociology. I wanted to become a family counselor. I took a job on weekends and in the summer working at a group home for underprivileged children. After witnessing a friend and colleague being racially discriminated against, firsthand, it motivated me to use my influence in law for social good. The next semester I started to study for the LSAT and to look at law schools. I’ve been practicing law for almost 20 years and I still look to protect the disenfranchised.
