How do I create connections in my professional life?

I am a member of various professional and industry organizations and am always looking for opportunities to enhance both the number and quality of organizations with which I am involved.

What's been my biggest challenge professionally?

I maintain a practice which involves the litigation of several hundred cases at any given time. My greatest professional challenge has been, and continues to be, managing those cases with a degree of care that achieves the substantive interests of the client and also satisfies my own standards for responsiveness and quality.

What is the best advice I received?

"That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well." (Abraham Lincoln)

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with Kings — nor lose the common touch,

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,

If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,

Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,

And — which is more — you'll be a Man, my son! (Rudyard Kipling)

What do I want my legacy to be?

I simply want to be remembered as achieving my potential and for leaving my personal and professional worlds better than I found them.
