Even as a kid, I guess I always knew I wanted to be a lawyer when I grew up. I loved movies like The Paper Chase, And Justice for All, The Verdict, and of course, To Kill a Mockingbird. These movies appealed to me because they were all about noble heroes who fought for justice; putting everything on the line to help good people fight the system.
I started college with the ultimate goal of going to law school. I finished up my undergraduate degree in 1988 at the University of New Mexico with a Bachelor of Arts in History and immediately started law school at UNM the very next semester. I graduated from UNM Law in May of 1991 and passed the New Mexico bar that summer.
