Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

Within the last year I graduated with a juris doctor (after years of being a practicing civil law attorney I decided to go back to school to become a fully trained US attorney), I became a member of the Florida bar, and started working as an associate at Shutts.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

Find a good mentor, copy good practices from seasoned attorneys, and never underestimate the importance of networking.

What is your favourite quote?

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On!’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race,” Calvin Coolidge.
