Having practiced law in the public and private sectors, national and boutique law firms, on civil and federal criminal matters, and as General Counsel in a manufacturing/logistics company on all transactional matters totaling 29 years, I offer a breadth and wealth of legal, practical, life experiences to my clients and approach to all matters at hand. For example, I devoted 11 years serving as an Assisant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of Florida prosecuting criminal narcotics cases and civil Medicare fraud.
As a Chinese-American female immigrant who has dealt with various forms of prejudice and pre-conceived notions, I have a keen sense of fairness and how lawyers and the justice system can help in leveling the playing field between parties of unequal strength.
I enjoy the practice of law because it allows me the opportunity to do justice through integrity, professionalism and also plain good luck along the way, too. My greatest strengths as an attorney have been earned through life experiences, helping others and intellectual curiosity.
If I did not pursue my calling as an attorney, I would have been a painter and writer as they require creativity, inspiration and discipline.
I am passionate about the humane treatment of all creatures and environmental sustainability for future generations. I have five dogs, many of whom are rescue and all deeply loved.
