While spending two years in Argentina on a church mission, I realized the importance of having an advocate. Several people in Argentina were living with little hope and little recourse to handle daily problems.
When I returned home, I noticed people in the United States living without an advocate and not knowing where to turn regarding their every day problems.
At that moment, I decided to become a lawyer to help people who cannot help themselves.
My desire is to point people in the right direction and use my legal training to be an advocate for others.
