The Business Law Section Diversity Fellowship Program is designed to assist a diverse and inclusive group of lawyers in becoming better leaders within our profession and the Business Law Section, while enhancing their leadership skills, as an encouragement and commitment to attract young and diverse lawyers to join, participate and ultimately serve in leadership positions of the Business Law Section. The Business Law Section will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Fellowship Program with the incoming 2023 class. Applications are being accepted until April 1st. The Inclusion/Mentorship/Fellowship Committee will be sharing Fellow Spotlights to allow the Section to get to know our outstanding current fellows on a weekly basis leading up to the application deadline.

What has been your best experience as a fellow?
The Labor Day Retreat. The events were informative and provided an opportunity to meet, in addition to the other fellows, a wide range of attorneys from all over Florida within the Business Law Section. In addition, the committee meetings were a great experience to learn from experienced business attorneys regarding practical and legislative considerations that have a real impact on how the law is revised and even formed within our state. The beach and social events were also great.
What kind of cases/matters excite you the most to work on?
My practice focuses on commercial litigation and trial work on behalf of individuals and business entities of all kinds. Our clients are passionate about their case, and I enjoy getting to know them personally which I feel helps me to better represent and advocate for them. The most exciting cases often involve complex issues which require different strategies to resolve a dispute, whether through mediation, arbitration, or trial.
What’s the best piece of advice you have received?
The best advice I have received is to always remember that professionalism comes first. Specifically, you can never put too high a premium on your credibility, whether dealing with clients, opposing counsel or the judiciary.
