Q: How many years have you been with HoganWillig?
A: Started March 2017 as a Law Clerk and I’ll be sworn in as an Associate Attorney in June
Q: What is your area of practice?
A: Civil Litigation
Q: Where did you attend school?
A: Canisius College where I earned my Bachelor’s in English and University at Buffalo School of Law for my Law degree.
Q: Why did you become a lawyer?
A: It wasn’t entirely planned; I majored in English in college. I really enjoyed it, but I came across the idea of becoming an attorney because my uncle is a lawyer. Once I started looking into it, I thought it was a win-win. I could still finish my education majoring in English, then go to law school after graduation. I wanted a respectable, clean-cut profession, so I took a chance,
and it’s worked out very well.
Q: Why did you choose to practice in Buffalo?
A: I was born and raised in Buffalo, so I wanted to stay local. My family and friends are all here, too.
Q: What’s the one thing you will want your clients to know about you?
A: I want them to know they can rely on me and that I'll always make time for them. I'll work hard to move along their case.
Q: What is your favorite restaurant in Buffalo?
A: That’s tough because it depends on the type of food. For Italian, my favorite is Sinatra’s, Mexican, I love Lloyd’s, and in general, I really love The Grange in Hamburg for pizza.
Q: What was the best concert you’ve ever been to?
A: Eric Church
Q: Which is your favorite book?
A: Tuesdays With Morrie
Q: Favorite Sports Team?
A: I would have to say the Bills, unfortunately, because everyone is a Bills fan in Buffalo.
