Most of us have had a moment in our life when we imagined being wealthy. When I say wealthy, some of you may think about having money for a private jet. If you are like me and don’t own a private jet, you might be interested in knowing that a new private jet can cost somewhere between 5 and 70 million dollars. At some point in our life, most of us have let our minds wonder about all the great things we would do if we were wealthy in the way that we as an individual define being wealthy. This can be a fun daydream for a few minutes, but we usually come back to earth and realize that we are probably not going to own a private jet in our lifetime.

Be sure to take advantage of your school’s peer tutoring services and try out a study group or two.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go, and why? Everywhere. I’ve been to 17 countries at this point. One of my goals is to visit 50 countries before I turn 50. And then after that, I want to visit all the rest. If I had to pick one place to go right now it would probably be New Zealand.

As we often state, our core values are Trust and Integrity. What we are saying to ourselves,
each other, our clients, our opponents and the world at large is: “You can trust my integrity.”
But what does that mean? Lawyers are addressed with the surname “Esq.” which stands for Esquire, from the Latin for
Knight. A couple of weeks ago, during a discussion, someone thought about the knight’s head
