Recognized as a Lawyer of the Year in Environmental Law
We selected nine Lawyers of the Year for portraits and asked them to share a favorite quotation and to tell us why they love what they do. These profiles appeared along with Woodward/White’s annual Best Lawyers in America list, as published in our November issue.
“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; it is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”

Why do you love what you do? “Working with clients to find sensible solutions to challenging environmental problems is one of the most gratifying aspects of my law practice. Environmental issues are ubiquitous; they are frequent front-page news and affect all parts of our society. The dynamic nature of environmental law keeps my work interesting and challenging. In the end, the appreciation I receive from my clients for helping them achieve their objectives is what makes the long hours and hard work worthwhile.”
