In her own words:

“My work involves a lot of advocacy before judges and municipal boards. The most effective lawyer in these situation is not the one that talks the loudest, but the one who is best prepared and most authoritative, and I strive to be that lawyer. I always ask myself the hardest questions about my cases and make sure I am prepared with the answers. That level of knowledge and preparation plus insight and unflagging determination is what lets me advocate effectively for my clients, no matter the forum.”
