"My initial entry into the practice of law was as a trial attorney in the area of Personal Injury Law. After several years, I found that my interest was more in the area of Real Property Law and gradually began to focus my practice there. The ability to interact in a productive and personal way with people has been the biggest attraction to being a real estate lawyer.
My philosophy toward life has always been 'to enjoy each moment of every day.' Aside from my law-related activities, I have enjoyed the opportunity of extensive travel throughout the world and participation in exciting eco-adventure trips. I also greatly enjoy running, skiing, and biking, and am an avid fan of theatre and the fine arts as well."
