Litigation Partner and Diversity Committee Chair
How did you first get into your profession?
I was inspired to enter the legal field after hearing stories from my American born-grandparents, both U.S. Citizens, who were interned during World War II at a Japanese internment camp in Idaho. I was optimistic that if one day I became a lawyer, I could be the voice for those who were unable to speak for themselves.
What business advice would you give someone just starting in your industry?
It is very important to get involved in community and civic organizations, not just because it may lead to business relationships, but more importantly because it is the right thing to do. I am very fortunate that my firm has supported me in my efforts to take a leadership role with the Asian Bar Association at both the local and national levels, including having been a co-founder and president of the Asian Bar Association of Las Vegas (ABALV) and having served in various officer/board positions for the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA)
