"Even though my professional career is as a criminal defense attorney, I am still a scientist at heart. I've found that the ability to "think like a scientist" - methodically, logically, empirically - serves as an invaluable asset for case analysis, evidence evaluation, and legal reasoning. That's one of the things I love the most about science and mathematics - it informs your whole outlook on the world and the way you think. And that's why I enjoy helping others to develop their scientific abilities as well."
