Why should people want to and choose to work with you?

I give 100% effort on each and every one of my cases. I approach every client, case, person, or challenge with the same level of care and treat each with equal respect.

I love Cleveland sports. I enjoy playing soccer in multiple adult leagues, reading fiction, and cooking. Most importantly, I won the "Best Sense of Humor" superlative as voted on by my peers on Law Review while in law school.
