“My career has been dedicated to fighting for those who are marginalized, over-looked and in need of help. Coming from a family of blue-collar workers taught me the importance of hard work, integrity, and standing up for your neighbor. Those values embody who I am personally, and they are what drive me as a lawyer.”
