Describe yourself in five words.
Always play by the rules.
Why did you become a lawyer?
I have always enjoyed learning and being challenged to be my best.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
To maintain good relationships, there are two things you should never sell to a family member or friend: your car or your house. This is good practical advice, and also a reminder that family and friends are more important than any financial opportunity.
What is one of the most positive experiences you’ve had as a lawyer?
I have had many. As an attorney I am constantly meeting interesting people with incredible life stories. The most positive experiences are those encounters that not only make me a better professional, but also teach me to be a better person.
What do you like the most about your practice area?
The Tax Code evolves and changes along with social norms and political attitudes. As a history guy, I appreciate that researching a particular tax law provides a glimpse into the cultural and political climate at the time a law was enacted.
What do you wish you had learned in law school?
I would have benefited from more...
