"As an attorney, one of my proudest moments was supporting a plaintiff through a grueling two-week trial in federal court. After months of preparation, the plaintiff took the stand and told me afterwards that he felt able to tell his story because of my support. Giving people a voice in what can be a taxing process is the reason I practice law. "
