From the article:
Partner at Sherin and Lodgen LLP, Boston
Years with firm: 3
Education: New York University School of Law
Career highlight: My career highlight is probably obtaining summary judgment for a young, sole practitioner in a legal malpractice case. He was so thankful and so delighted that I was able to help him. I truly was touched and reminded about why I do what I do and also reminded that the personal connection we make with our clients is as important as our victories.
The most important issue facing the legal profession: The public’s misunderstanding of the role of the judiciary and the willingness of the Legislature to cut funding for the judicial branch. A safe, orderly society and a thriving economy both require a well-funded, strong, independent judiciary.
Best advice you were ever given: Always do the right thing. Sometimes it is hard to know what is the right thing to do. Sometimes it is hard to do the right thing. But once you know, easy or hard, always do the right thing.
