“Mid-life is the time when the universe grabs you by the shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers, ‘I’m not kidding around. I’ve given you some gifts and you’re not sharing them with the world. We’re at the half-way mark here. Let’s get serious.” ~Brene Brown

This is my mission; it  explains why I’ve come back to the law after years of teaching and raising a family. I’m about at the midway point in my useful life… maybe even past it.  I know that after the experiences I have had as a professor, a teacher, a parent, a wife, a friend that I can do good work for people during some difficult times in their lives.I’m ready to share that with the world and get serious about using the gifts I have to help people.
