This shillelagh, an Irish club, was given to me by a grateful client after prevailing in a tough case. It reminds me that regardless of the outcome, to always give it my best.

Serving in the U.S. Navy aboard this ship was an opportunity to serve my country, and to make life-long relationships.

Given to me by a family member not long after the birth of our son, this sculpture symbolizes the joy of family and the privilege of fatherhood.
