What gives you the most satisfaction in your work?
Law practice is all about client service and I enjoy counseling our professionals through the legal situations (negotiations, etc.) they encounter, enabling a favorable result that they might not have thought possible, and the camaraderie that follows from serving as a valued business partner and trusted advisor.
What is something most people don't know about you?
I'm a valuable team member in any trivia competition.
Outside of professional activities, what other hobbies or pastimes do you enjoy?
I enjoy hunting (especially deer hunting), reading history and mystery novels, and taking in sports (especially college sports).
