1. What has been the biggest hurdle you have overcome in your career?
Prior to joining Nelson Mullins in 2017, I was an associate at a very large firm in New York City for almost nine years. With all the challenges that come along with working in New York City and trying to raise a young family, my wife and I decided to leave New York City. It was a very tough decision at the time, but moving to Charlotte and joining Nelson Mullins has worked out very well for me and my family.
2. Describe how you feel about your career now that you’ve made partner.
I’m proud of what I have accomplished thus far, but I think the best is still to come, and I’m very excited about the next stage of my career as a partner at Nelson Mullins.
3. What are your key components to being successful in your career?
The biggest keys to my success in my career have been maintaining a tireless work ethic and positive attitude and keeping calm under pressure.
4. Who had the greatest influence in your career that helped drive you to partnership?
There are a lot of people who have played a part in helping me get to where I am today. There is no doubt I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. However, the greatest influence that has driven me to partnership is my family and my desire to be the best for them. That motivates me every day.
5. What’s the best piece of advice you would give an associate who wants to make partner?
My best advice would be to work harder than everyone else around you. There are some things that you can’t change as an associate, but working hard is something that every associate can do and will make you stand out among your colleagues.
