“My professors at CUA Law taught me not just theoretical principles of law, but how to find practical and workable solutions to thorny legal problems. Those practical approaches have served me well in representing clients in my years of private practice as well as my tenure as a government lawyer. I also made several very close and life-long friends in law school, whose love and support I treasure every day.”
