With Widener Law Since:
While You Were Sleeping
What Widener Law Has to Offer:
When I graduated from Widener Law in 1990, I was prepared to practice law. The day after I passed the bar, I was in court as a litigator. I believe in the value of the legal education we’re providing, and I believe it because I experienced it first hand.
What’s Great About Your Job?
Helping people to realize their dreams and advising them on how to pursue them. Sometimes applicants will come with their parents and you can see the pride on the parents’ faces. That’s awesome to be a part of.
What Makes a Good Letter of Recommendation?
For me, its not as important who writes your letter, but rather, what they have to say about you is critical. Many people think that it has to be a professor, but an employer works as well. I want to know that you’re responsible and capable of critical thinking, hard work, and multitasking. It matters to me what the recommender says about who the applicant is.
What Makes You Proud?
I enjoy seeing students that I’ve made a personal connection with succeed in law school, particularly when I see them succeed after there were questions about whether or not they could do it. Providing an opportunity.
