What made you go into law?
I took a class when I was Yale Undergrad that was titled – Blacks and the Law. It was taught by Justice Flemming L. Norcott of the Connecticut Supreme Court. His presence and legal acumen sparked my interest in becoming an attorney.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Being able to assist a client and provide meaningful advice and consultation. Sometimes that means explaining the “cost-effective” approach. Other times, it means explaining the risks inherent in pursuing or defending a case. At the end of the day, clients seek out lawyers for advice and counsel about how to solve their problems and being able to help them is a great part of this profession.
If you could give advice to new attorneys, what would it be?
My advice to new attorneys is to try to experience as many different types of legal practice areas as possible. While it is fine to specialize at some point in their career, they stand to be much better attorneys if they have some experience with several different practice areas. In addition, you never know whether a particular area of the law may be just what you are looking for if you never get the chance to encounter it.
What does your typical day look like?
One of the interesting parts of this job is that there really is not a typical day. When you get into the office, you may have your day all mapped out, but it may not stay that way for long. Every day brings new challenges and new experiences.
What is your least favorite part of your job?
Billing and collections. The practice of law is still a business, but like most attorneys, I would prefer to focus on my cases and assisting clients with their problems, rather than worrying about collecting fees.
