What first inspired you to get into your line of work? And what motivates you to do the work you do still today?
I became aware of the importance of the law when following politics as a youth. I saw the devastation of abortion, and knew that one reason abortion was legal was that Christians had abandoned the legal profession. I knew that shouldn’t be the case and that Christians, like myself, needed to return to this arena.
How did you come to faith in Christ?
I became a Christian due to being faithfully raised in a Christian home where I was spared hypocrisy and saw the truth of a life faithfully lived. This led me to not only have an intellectual acceptance of the Gospel, but a desire to fully, if imperfectly, live for Christ the King.
How does your faith impact the way you do business?
My heroes of the faith are great men like Chuck Colson, Francis Schaeffer, Abraham Kuyper. Men like these taught me that being a Christian affects all of life, including my life as an attorney. Therefore, I strive to be an attorney who knows the law well; who cares for every client; who takes on difficult, but just, matters; and who does so as a man demonstrating Christian integrity. To summarize, it is my hope that my faith impacts my work in the same manner that Paul wrote to the Colossians, “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. “
What ministry/cause do you champion and why?
Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has been advocating for religious liberty, the sanctity of human life, freedom of speech, and marriage and family for over 25 years. I have been able to volunteer with ADF several times over the course of my career to defend Christians who have suffered for their Christian convictions and actions. In the coming years, it is all the more important that groups like ADF receive support from the Christian community.
