“The hours I spent in the Moot Court office were an introduction to the type of legal research I now do on a daily basis. Professor Filiatrault always encouraged us to take leadership roles in our Moot Court teams, which is part of the reason our teams are consistently successful at national competitions.”

What are your current work responsibilities? 
With a background in media law, my current practice focuses on trademark, copyright, and other areas of intellectual property.

What are the most rewarding aspects of your job?
The most rewarding aspect of my current position is obtaining positive results for my clients. I also have the good fortune of working with some of the brightest, collegial attorneys I have met in my career thus far. Additionally, the firm encourages even junior associates to take on pro bono projects, which can be a great deal of fun and a great way to learn.

Were there certain experiences at MSU Law that helped you prepare for or obtain your current position?
The hours I spent in the Moot Court office were an introduction to the type of legal research I now do on a daily basis. I remember falling asleep on the sofa in that office and waking up to find pictures of myself sleeping posted online by friends of mine in the Trial Advocacy program. For those who wanted to, there were plenty of opportunities for students on the Moot Court Board to participate in mock trial practices and vice versa. Professor Filiatrault always encouraged us to take leadership roles in our Moot Court teams, which is part of the reason our teams are consistently successful at national competitions. I also enjoyed my time co-editing the school paper, Res Ipsa Loquitor. We had a lot of fun putting that together.

What would you consider to be the strengths of the Law College? 
I think one of the law school's strengths is its faculty. There were so many professors who went out of their way to encourage and engage students. There are too many to name, but some that will always stand out for me are Professors Kuykendall, Candeub, Pager, Costello, Bean, Fletcher, and Lawrence. Professor Costello's research and writing class was one of the most fun and useful classes I took. 

Is there any additional insight you would like to share?
You get out of law school what you put into it. You will have more flexibility during the three years of law school than you will when you're practicing. Be as involved as you can, and get involved in a wide range of activities.
