One of the things that initially attracted me to the law was my interest in other people’s stories. I think my appreciation for those stories adds to my effectiveness as a trial attorney, as it enables me to relate events to jurors in a more personal manner. In turn, this helps me persuade each juror that what we are asking them to do is also the right thing to do.
