WHAT INSPIRES ME ABOUT MY WORK
“Most of my practice is criminal defense. It wasn’t what I had originally intended when I went to law school, but I caught the bug as a first-year student. Personal bankruptcy makes up the rest of my work. I like working with individuals—some of them at the lowest point of their life—and being able to provide help.”
AWAY FROM WORK
“I enjoy going to the theatre and listening to live music, as well as sampling some of the areas' great restaurants. Philly is a great town for entertainment!”
