Do you have a woman, inside or outside the practice of law, who inspires (or inspired) you in life?
Sandra Day O’Connor inspired me to go to law school, well before I understood anything about what it meant to be a lawyer. I did a book report on her in elementary school, and something about the fact that she graduated at the top of her class but still struggled to get hired as a lawyer because she was a woman struck a chord in my little soul.
What interested you in practicing law?
I like helping people solve even the most complex problems.
What is your favorite book?
So many! My perennial favorites are Catch-22 and Pride & Prejudice. My favorite recent read is Cloud Cuckoo Land.
What is your favorite quote?
“You didn’t get up today to be mediocre.” Robin Arzon, Peloton Instructor & recovered lawyer
What makes L&B a great place to work?
Hands down, the amazing people.
