Q & A
What can potential clients expect when working with you?
Clients can expect a hands-on approach. Every decision that I make when I embark on a new case is centered on the client's desired objectives. At the beginning of each case I make it a point to have a firm grasp of the client's position and goals. I remain committed while keeping clients abreast of case progress. One of my chief aims is to cultivate a real connection with clients that remains after the case is closed. This desire, coupled with our team's tenacity for results, creates a meaningful engagement for our clients.
What non-legal accomplishments are you most proud of?
I am a former recipient of the Helyn B. Reich Scholarship through the American Zionist Movement (AZM) organization. This scholarship provided me with the incredible opportunity to live in Israel for a year. At its core AZM's goal is to help strengthen the connection of American Jews with Israel. I was charged with the responsibility of connecting low income families with adequate resources related to health and education.

I am particularly proud of this period in my life because it taught me resilience and gave me a profound sense of commitment. I believe these are life lessons and important character traits that have had an evident impact on my career as an attorney.
