What is the greatest success you’ve had since joining LWP?
Since joining LWP my greatest success has been being able to use the skills and tools obtained from LWP training to foster referrals from a number of other attorneys of estate planning and elder law clients. I find these referrals as my most valued as it indicates the level of trust and experience that attorneys in my community have for my firm.
My favorite LWP tool is the whole focuser concept. From meeting to daily, they keep me on track and on top of what I need to accomplish and what I have accomplished!
How has being part of LWP impacted your team and your practice?
I'm a solo with a small team. Having LWP, as well as Actionstep, in our corner provides the support and resources that one would find only in a large firm. Having the LWP community as a sounding board for various questions on the ListServ as well as the weekly webinars affirms the cordial and knowledgeable community of which my firm is proud to be part of.
Share something about yourself that most people don’t know about you.
I have been singing since I was 9 years old. I've been a cantor in my church as well as the lead singer of local rock cover band. Recently I was in a local remake of the Broadway musical Big Fish and in December I will be reprising my role as Santa Claus in Staten Island's version of the Radio City Christmas Show. So...HO HO HO!!
What is your favorite book and how did it impact your life?
I am an avid reader of Science Fiction and Fantasy novels as I am a HUGE geek. In fact, I will be attending the New York City Comicon with my family this month, and yes we will be cosplaying as characters from Star Wars! As far as a favorite book? It would be Joseph Campbell's, Hero with a Thousand Faces, which I first read in college. It tracks the mythology of the hero through many different cultures and was actually used by George Lucas to write the original Star Wars screenplay. I like to think that we, as attorneys, and our teams are heroes as we help so many families plan for their future and protect their stuff for future generations.
