Best Advice for Finding Happiness:

“There is a lot of stuff outside the law that is really interesting and, whether you have a law degree or not, the types of people that get law degrees would be really really good at them.”


“If that feeling when a memo goes off to a client and you just are onto the next thing and you don’t feel anything behind it, there is maybe something out there, maybe the thing that sparked you to go to law school or maybe something in a completely different field where you feel a thrill to get up and do it everyday."
