Q: What obstacles did you encounter on your way up?

A: My obstacles were the same that most lawyers face. I was at a big firm, and what that meant was that you have grueling hours. I remember many nights of working early into the morning, going home at 4 a.m. or 5 a.m., and working on weekends. That’s not unique to me. It’s part of that setting. In retrospect, as hard as that was, I think there was no substitute for the kind of training you get being under that stress. It helps you become a lawyer who can handle stressful situations.
