What do you want a personal injury victim to come away with after the initial meeting with you?
When clients leave my office, I want them to know that I care, that I’m on their side, that I’m just like them even though I have a lawyer hat on. I want them to know I’ll go to battle for them. I want them to know they’ve met someone they can trust and somebody they can count on to fight for them.
What is the most satisfying aspect of being a personal injury lawyer?
For me, the most satisfying aspect of being a personal injury lawyer is knowing I’ve tried my hardest on behalf of my clients. I let my clients know we have their back and are in their corner. At the end of the day, if I’ve done everything I can to help them, I’m satisfied.
