Q & A
What excites you about practicing law?
The intersection of business and the law motivates me to help clients be successful. While the law is finite, astute and perceptive, lawyers can help clients overcome obstacles and achieve their business goals. I especially enjoy finding unexpected case law or little-known statutes that can be creatively applied in support of our client’s case. As litigators, we work collaboratively to leverage individual skills, knowledge, and research. This type of teamwork adds tangible benefits to a case and intangible value for the attorneys and their clients.
When did you decide to pursue a legal career?
I am the first lawyer in my family of medical and real estate professionals. At a very young age, I decided to become a lawyer and set forth a plan to achieve my goal. Through public forum debating, I learned how to prepare persuasive presentations through intensive issue research and well-organized oratory. In college, I learned parliamentary debate. This format requires opposite but complementary skills of spontaneously presenting a convincing argument without any preparation.
How does your personal engagement in the South Florida community inform your work as an attorney?
For years, my family and I have been involved in charity and pro bono work in the Haitian Community. Through a book bag drive we provide school materials for children at multiple orphanages in time for the new school year. Though my family and I started with providing book bags to the children in need, we also made it a point to listen to the caretakers of the children. While school supplies were always welcomed, many of the children and orphanages were in need of other basic necessities, things that we would never have thought to include in our donations. I have applied the same way of thinking into my practice. Though we may know the law, the client will know their own needs, and it is our job to use the law to help our clients meet those needs.
