I was drawn to practice law because the law is both academic and practical. The law requires a thorough pursuit of academic endeavors to succeed but at the same time requires very practical and beneficial efforts to help clients. I chose to practice workers’ compensation law because of the overlap with labor and employment issues and the consequences of injured workers for employers.
My passion has always been sports. I participated in baseball, football, basketball, golf, bowling and tennis. I was never great at the playing but was always very good at the coaching, writing, evaluating, announcing, scoring, or refereeing. My great uncle always thought I was going to be a sports writer. Today, I mostly watch sports. I have joined the Fresno State Bulldogs Dugout Club and regularly now attend all sporting events.
