When in need of a quick recharge I…take a break from electronics and go for a walk.

When I can’t fall asleep I…play rain sounds through my phone.

My preferred method of exercise is…lifting weights at the gym.

I am most looking forward to…traveling the world.

During the week I wake up at…between 7 and 7:15 am, depending on if I hit snooze.

The best way to deal with a difficult colleague or opposing counsel is…take the higher ground and kill them with kindness.

The most relaxing vacation I ever took was…to the beach.

The happiest lawyers are those that…ensure to set aside time each day to unplug from work and spend time with family and/or friends.

Law schools should teach…the practical skills needed to be a lawyer, such as handling a case from beginning to end, speaking with clients, and speaking with opposing counsel.

If I could travel anywhere in the world right now it would be…Italy.
