what i've learned
"Practicing law is an honor. It's an honor to be chosen to work with a client in what can be the most difficult time of conflict in his or her life. Honor keeps me conscious of modeling kindness and civility, opening the door to my creative mind to see possible resolutions unique to each case. Honor feeds my determination to bring my opponent on board as an ally, not an adversary, and when not possible,
to be resolute in maintaining integrity as a strong legal advocate. It is this honor that keeps me in and keeps me loving my profession." — Alexis Squier
