Question 3

Why do you enjoy this practice area?

The practice of environmental law is enjoyable because while the law itself may be straightforward, developing practical solutions to some environmental problems can often require creativity and interdisciplinary coordination. I enjoy the planning aspects of environmental law, which require forward thinking and result-oriented focus. Most generally, I can see the fruits of my labor in projects that are built or activities that are undertaken in ways that fairly balance modernization and progress with resource protection and conservation.
