In His Words ...

“I am very lucky and honored to be a supervising attorney in our clinical program. I have the opportunity to work with our wonderful students by providing them with real-life experiences through actual client representation and at the same time provide a legal avenue for people who might otherwise have nowhere else to turn.”
