Q & A
What do you enjoy most about being a litigator?
I enjoy analyzing facts, evaluating issues, and anticipating obstacles to build a successful case. It’s rewarding to guide a client through what can be a difficult time by providing advice that is not short-sighted; but, rather deliberate, strategic and mindful of the long-term impact. We are counselors to our clients; when making litigation decisions, we consider the overall business implications and ways to eliminate potential future liability.
What is your proudest moment as a lawyer?
I was recognized by the Supreme Court of Florida, Young Lawyers Division of the Florida Bar and the Florida Pro Bono Coordinators Association for exceptional pro bono service. I am equally proud that Bilzin Sumberg won the Legal Services of Greater Miami’s Equal Justice Pro Bono Impact Award, in large part, due to a matter that I worked on with one of our founding partners. My experience working with the less fortunate in our community deepens my appreciation for Bilzin Sumberg’s commitment to pro bono work. The firm encourages us to be well-rounded professionals who respond to the needs of our community.
What has been your experience with the mentorship program at Bilzin Sumberg?
With one office, mentorship happens at all levels every day. From the most senior members of the firm to lawyers only a few years ahead of me, I have benefited from sage advice, practical tips, and teachable moments on a diverse set of issues from my formal and informal mentors I appreciate the firm’s emphasis on developing comprehensive litigation skills before focusing on a specific industry or area of law. Lawyers are encouraged to perfect their advocacy and trial capabilities and most importantly, demonstrate their commitment to serving their clients.
How does your first career as a special education teacher add value to your legal practice?
I understand the critical importance of conveying complex concepts using simple, relatable, and digestible language. It is gratifying to know that our clients, like my former students, rely on us every day to be present, organized and prepared to guide and assist them.
