You’re in safe hands

Through my career, there are two questions I get asked most often. Why did I become a lawyer? and How can I fight for those who are guilty in committing a crime?

I can say that people have a different view on the same situation if they are looking from aside or if this situation is happening to them or their family.

For me, being a lawyer means that I help people to have a fair chance for their side of the story to be considered and seen.

Fight for people where they are unable to fight for themselves.

Navigate them through a complicated and challenging situation and achieve the very best outcome possible.

Because I believe in justice, I believe in fairness, and I believe in having a second chance. 

And, at risk sounding cliche, being a lawyer gives me a chance to make a mark on humanity.
