Since joining the Florida Bar in 2018, I have learned that the integrity, humility, and civility lawyers practice with their clients is sadly not always reciprocated amongst their legal contemporaries. Fortunately, organizations such as the Broward County Bar Association and Young Lawyers Section (“YLS”) are committed to fostering healthier relationships amongst lawyers while simultaneously giving back to the local community.
Those goals, among others, cannot be achieved without the volunteer and devotion of those in the legal community. Thus, I joined the YLS Board of Directors last year. During that time, we have raised money for charities, donated essentials to children in need, and have hosted numerous social events for practicing attorneys and judges to unwind, network, and discuss their respective work.
As Secretary of YLS, I intend to further these goals by continuing the work my predecessors have started and by creating an environment committed to fostering novel ideas.
