What is your definition of success?

Success is improving each time you try something while finding joy in trying it.

What’s the most unique part about working at LDM?

The most unique part of working at LDM, at least as an associate, is how quickly the firm helps you get practical experience at every step of the litigation process. The partners at LDM are actively invested in helping associates get out from behind their desk and attend client meetings, depositions, hearings, and trials.

What’s one thing — either industry-related or not — you learned in the last month?

Dog breeds as we know them did not exist until the late 19th century.

What’s the best advice you can give to someone who is just starting their career?

The best advice I can give to new professionals is to remember that you are new. You will not know the answer to every question off the top of your head right away. Trust that you’ll learn and continue to develop your skills as time goes on.

What are you currently reading, listening to or binge-watching?

I’m currently reading Emperor of Rome by Mary Beard and watching my Iowa Hawkeyes attempt to have the worst offense in college football history.
