Why I Became a Lawyer

In college I became active in several social action groups, working with senior citizens and becoming active in a Speaker’s Bureau. I met a lot of different people, and saw families struggle through difficult times and triumph over their obstacles. These experiences triggered ideas about my future and how to make the world a better place.

I thought about the things I liked to do: meet new people, learn new things and help solve problems. Becoming a personal injury lawyer seemed to be an ideal profession where I could do all of these things. I attended NYU Law School and found that the law was an exciting place for new ideas and challenging solutions to the issues of the day.
