While terrible at the Rubix’s Cube and trigonomics, law fulfills my passion for finding solutions to complex problems. As a lifelong learner, each file provides its own twists and turns which allows for a rejigging of legal tests and moments to scratch your head. Plus, I bet my mom $100 when I was 12 that I would be a lawyer… I won the bet.
