That’s a good question. I graduated with a history major and thought, “What now?” I like to write, I like to talk, I like people so going into the legal profession just felt like a very natural progression and I get to do all of those things on a very daily basis. Going into family law was very natural. I’m the product of divorced parents so I very much understand what it feels like to be the child in a parenting time exchange and what it feels like to be dividing holidays and traveling on Christmas. I like to think that my experience can help me keep my clients grounded about focusing on what’s really best for their kids going forward not maybe about what the parents want.
