people strive towards life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness. I have smiled with clients
during success and been overcome with anger
and sorrow during failures. I worked hard to
become an attorney because it was what
I've wanted to do since I was 12 years old.
The exact reasons have changed over the years
but the focus has always been the same.
grew up in Brooklyn, NY to a lower income immigrant
family, lived in Fontana, CA, Jackson, TN, and finally
established roots in Chicago, IL. I accomplished a lot of
firsts in my family but it is because of them that I was able
to do my best and always keep my goals in mind. At 13,
my father told me to get a job. Since that time, I have
worked in so many fields that I can't even count them
anymore. They may have seemedlike things to do to make
money at the time, but as I look back on my work
experience, I fully understand how much those
jobs-whether it be cashier, bank teller, or pizza cook-help
me in my career as an attorney. I can empathize with my
clients because I am my clients. I put them at ease because
I believe an attorney's role first and foremost is to make
his clients' lives better. I graduated from the University
of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a B.A. in Political
Science and from the DePaul University College of
Law in Chicago, IL with a Juris Doctor.
