Favorite saying/quote:  “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world."  – Nelson Mandela

The best piece of advice ever given to you and by whom: My grandfather advised me to always take your time when weighing an important decision, but once you make the decision to never look back.

What do you think is the biggest challenge facing attorneys today? The erosion of the right to trial by jury through “contract” and through legislation that effectively denies access to the courts by individual victims and consumers.
