How Does Your Courtroom Persona And Past Experience Help Your Clients Prior To And During Litigation?
Prior to becoming an attorney, I was an eighth and tenth-grade American history teacher. My grandmother and both parents were also teachers, as is my wife. Ultimately, trial advocacy is really all about teaching; we take very complex medical issues, liability issues, and physics, and we break it all down into easy-to-understand parts so that the jury can make the best, fairest, and most honest evaluation and determination.
Knowing how to engage people, be likeable, and show understanding, compassion, and respect to everyone—including the jurors, the defense, the judge, the bailiff, and the clerk—really helps. Most people will tell you that I have a big heart and that I am a caring person. Truthfully, I get a lot of satisfaction from helping people. I’ve always been the person who stands up for the little guy, and I carry this attitude into my practice of law, as I am willing to take on any worthy case against anyone—even a bully.
My grandmother’s mantra was to strive to do at least one thing every day for someone else. I try to live up to that expectation, and I find extreme value and satisfaction from helping somebody using my skills that I’ve been blessed to have learned and gained from other people. I’ve had a lot of great mentors—including Nick Rowley, Keith Mitnik, David Ball, and Stephen King—who have helped me become the best trial lawyer and the best possible version of myself.
