“My father started as an immigrant, but found success as an entrepreneur. I chose to become a lawyer after observing the challenges he faced starting and operating a small business. For most, the people who comprise and support their business are an extension of their family. Whether small or large, I am honored to advocate for and defend the business interests of my many clients, just as I would my own family.”
