“You see, Southern University is not the type of school that makes it easy for you; you are not coddled or picked up off the ground when things get tough. At Southern, you are commanded not to lie there; you are commanded to get up, on your own, because Southern is preparing you for the real world.”Read More
Pursuing a career in law has quickly became my Purpose channeled by my Passion. As I move forward in my practice, I am fueled by my community and environment to bring Justice where it is due. I believe now more than ever that I was created, rather destined for this path that I am on now. I wake up daily with the thought of my fellow brothers and sisters in mind and how I can do my part to aid in equal Justice for all. Yes, this is it! (My Passion mixed with My Purpose)
We all are all destined for greatness, if only we pursue it, if only we put our Passion where our Purpose is. Ask yourself, what am I passionate about? Write it down. Then go be great it!

A word of advice to young professionals
As I prep for two criminal matters on tomorrow, I cannot thank the staff at the National Criminal Defense College enough for equipping me with invaluable knowledge and skills. I am overly prepared.
As a young attorney, I frequently go against opposing counsel who sometimes have been practicing law longer than I have been alive. On one particular matter I was told "your bar roll numbers are too young for this type of case".
The practice of law is not about how old your bar roll number is. It's about the quality and amount of work you put in (the grind). It's about the time you put into your practice. It's about the amount and quality of trainings you attend. It's about the mentors you choose.
So to that I say, and a word of advice to young professionals, you cannot cheat the grind. PUT IN THE WORK. There will always be someone more experienced or more well-known, etc. Attend good quality trainings. Read the treatises. Research everything. Ask questions. Practice your strategy, over and over. Reach out to mentors. OUTWORK THEM.
And as for these criminal matters tomorrow... #HeComingHome #KnowledgeIsPower #DCTG #NCDC
