"One of the challenges in life is finding a rewarding career that does not grow stale. All too often, we settle for finding a job. This is not a job. Defending healthcare professionals against allegations of malpractice presents new challenges daily . We are either learning new medicine or applying old medicine to new facts. It is never boring, never repetitive and it certainly doesn’t hurt that we have the honor of representing some of society’s truest heroes."
