1. Why did you become a lawyer?

Being a lawyer means I get to help people resolve their biggest personal or professional challenges. I find that type of work very rewarding.

2. What made you choose Hanson Bridgett?

The construction practice here at Hanson Bridgett was growing fast, and was bringing in some of the industry's best practitioners and disputes on the largest projects. I wanted to be a part of that movement.

3. Besides law, what are some of your other passions?

My family foremost. Friends would be a close second. Then comes basketball and music.

4. What keeps you busy outside of Hanson Bridgett?

Working on being a good husband and father.

5. Are you active in any organizations?

Most active in the Tipping Point Community, an incredible nonprofit here in San Francisco that works to prevent homelessness.

6. What would be your proudest accomplishment as an attorney?

Achieving a $1.15B judgment for the abatement of lead-based paint in homes throughout California. Removal of lead from homes will make an immediate impact on California's children, and a lasting difference to the future generations here in the state.
