Professional enjoyment: Being a transactional lawyer, my favorite part about the legal profession is working together with lawyers and non-lawyers to work together toward a common goal of successfully completing a transaction.
Your inspiration: My inspiration and the most important role model in not only the legal profession but life was (and continues to be) my grandfather. He put others first by leading a life of service. The law degree was a tool he used to provide such service to clients, non-profits, and the public at large.
Why bar association involvement: The Indiana State Bar Association has so many great things to offer to lawyers, but perhaps the most important to me is the opportunity to work with lawyers around the state on service projects and issues facing the legal profession.
