C.E.O

Attorney

I decided to become an attorney because I wanted to be the first in my family with a doctoral degree; and innovating legal services for better access to justice was the best use of that degree.

SARA M. KELLEY

I decided to become an attorney because I never believed I was getting a straight answer from other attorneys when I sought legal advice -- I wanted to know the law so I could get a better perspective.
