Company/Job title: Hinshaw & Culbertson. LLP, Partner/Attorney
How I got into my career: I graduated from the University of Florida-Levin College of Law in 2011 and began my legal career that same year in the South Florida offices (Miami and Fort Lauderdale) of a firm after passing the Florida Bar exam.
My greatest professional achievement: My biggest professional accomplishment, aside from favorable legal rulings as high up as the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit (one level shy of the US Supreme Court), would have to be attaining status of partner in such a large national firm.
In my spare time: Spending time with my wife Krystal and daughters Zora and Zola, enjoying all that nature has to offer in this beautiful Florida weather — hiking, beaching, camping and fishing.
life after 40: I see myself continuing on my current career trajectory into broader leadership roles within this national firm, potentially culminating with obtaining a seat on the Judiciary at some level within the State. On a more personal note, I plan to devote more time to achieving my goal of creating a foundation through which I cover the college expenses for a group of kids every year back in my Sumter County community. The ultimate focus of that foundation would be aimed at permanently altering the generational trajectory of each recipient.
