There is nothing more satisfying than achieving a just result for my clients. It is an honor for me to spend my days working for people who otherwise may have no voice and no way to secure their rights. That is why we fight for justice for all people, including the most underserved among us.

I started my career in West Africa to implement the most basic human rights and rules of law. We can never forget the work we have done in our country to provide access to justice for all who need it. We must continue to work toward a more equal playing field where the strongest and richest do not win by default, simply as a result of their positions of power.

When I see a wrong, I believe it needs to be righted. That is why I practice law.
