How did you get into adoption law?
MyersStrickland had a position available in early 2014, and a friend of mine who had known Scott Myers for years referred me to the firm. I had not had prior experience in the field of law, but have been delighted to learn the ins and outs of this specialty.
What is your favorite part about your job?
I really love being the one to call the families to tell them they have an adoption hearing scheduled. It’s such fun to be a part of their excitement – I’ve heard a lot of joyous screams, happy tears, and general celebration. Each interaction brightens my day.
What is one thing you’d most want people to know about MyersStrickland?
