“I’ve spent most of my life on the soccer field. As an athlete, I have a passion and determination for performing at my highest level. I’ve carried that same passion and determination from the soccer field to the courtroom. Mia Hamm famously said, “Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become, and the hours of practice, and the coaches who have pushed you, is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back… play for her.” As I represent my clients in their fight against corporate America, I’ve never looked back.”
