What are your favorite types of cases to take?

Not every matter involving a lawyer is a case.  I handle contract negotiations, real estate matters, wills, etc.  While I enjoy family law cases because people really need our help, I prefer mediating family cases.  Helping spouses reach an agreement that is determined by their own decisions is very satisfying to me.


What do you love about living in Union County?

Union County retains much of its rural character despite tremendous growth.


Did you always want to be a lawyer?

Actually, as a child, I wanted to be a scientist who studied space.  However, I come from a family of lawyers, so it was natural for me to consider it for my career.


What is your favorite place to eat in Monroe?

There are so many restaurants in Monroe  to choose from, however, I enjoy Mexican fare when I can.



What is your favorite Saturday afternoon activity?

I enjoy working in our yard, then coming in to watch college sports.


Where would you love to travel to?

I would like to travel to Canada and take the Trans-continental railroad.


Beach or mountains?



What book are you reading?

Hue- A book about Viet Nam and the Tet offensive.
