It’s been quite a road.  I am very grateful to my family, law partner Mr. Rosell, friends and clients that supported me in my dream and mission over the last 40 years of being a small-town lawyer.  Without them, I wouldn’t have made it.  With the help of many others, I’ve done my best to give back and I’m very proud of what I’ve done.
