Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (7/21/2017)

I have only 10 sleeps left in my current home in Fort Lauderdale until I move from Victoria Park to the isles off Las Olas. It has always been a dream of mine to live on the water, and soon, at 32-years-old, I get to turn that dream into a reality. I had no idea that I would have taken the path that I have in my professional life. As many of you know, I originally was set on being a sports agent. But I think I have found my calling, assisting hundreds of clients as their lawyer and starting my own law firm. I’m going to stay hungry, passionate, energetic and driven to create success for me and my growing family, which includes all of my clients.
