I think ultimately the decision for me to become an attorney is I really wanted to help people. I felt being a lawyer is a noble profession. And I think that we have the opportunity to really help people and to provide justice to people that somehow can't provide justice for themselves—people that need a voice, need someone to speak on their behalf, someone to represent their interests because they're unable to. Oftentimes, many of the clients that I've represented have not only inspired me to be a better lawyer, but a better person because I have seen what they've been through. I've lived what they've been through with them, and I oftentimes marvel at how they're able to overcome the devastation, and the plight, and the handicaps, and the disability, and the pain, and the things that they've had to go through and endured. I've taken so many things away from a representation of my clients that I've instilled in my own life and my own family.
