What is one of the biggest misconceptions about being an attorney or the legal function itself?
That all attorneys know every area of law. I often receive questions about various areas of law that I have never practiced. I love when someone asks me a question about an area of law that I’m not familiar with because it gives me an opportunity to learn something new and refer the person to a colleague that can help them.
What is the most meaningful case or pro bono experience you’ve worked on?
In 2019, I represented a woman in an asylum case. It was so important to her family’s safety that she was granted asylum. She had experienced some very scary things, and it was a joy to advocate for her.
What song or album motivates you the most?
“Away From Home” by Drake. This song is one of my favorite songs because Drake reflects on his journey to becoming one of the best artists of all time.
