I am most thankful today for … my and my family’s health.

A period in my life when I really struggled was … when my father had a business partner rip him off. 

My preferred method of exercise is … skiing, but realistically, spinning. 

The most important thing in my life is … my health so that I can take care of everything else.

I am most productive during the day when I … have a definite goal.

The one thing I would tell a stressed-out and overwhelmed lawyer is   “this too shall pass.” 

Every day I make sure to … drink as much water as I can remember to drink.

On a typical Saturday night, you will find me … at home watching movies with my wife.

If I could go back to when I was a young lawyer and give myself advice, I would say … your client is generally not worth a bad personal relationship with your opposing counsel.

The best way to deal with a difficult colleague or opposing counsel is … ignore most of what they do.

The quickest way to ruin your career is … place too much importance on making money.

The worst piece of advice I ever received was … whoever bills the most hours wins.

The most gratifying part about my job is  solving problems that others could not solve.

The best way to promote health & wellness among lawyers is … more exercise. 

The best advice I’ve received about balancing work and life is   “you can’t take it with you.”
