Why he chose to specialize in this field
I enjoy working with people. Estate planning, estate administration and business law give me the opportunity to help folks plan for the expected and the unexpected and deal with what can be difficult situations. It has been a great career choice. It has given me the opportunity to work with some really wonderful people and their families.
What he’d be if not a lawyer
History teacher or a travel consultant. I enjoy history and love to travel.
Best advice received
From my dad when I left home for college: “Remember how you were raised.”
Washington, D.C. I love the history and beauty of the place.
The Bible. It provides guidance for how we should strive to live our life with joy and provides hope in the face of uncertainty or difficulty.
Favorite TV show
