Quote: “I would hope that my colleagues in the profession, who deem me worthy of this sort of recognition, see that what I bring to the practice of law is a rigorous evaluation of the law, which advocates for clients and at the same time treats colleagues in the profession with the respect that is owed to anyone who practices law.”
