"I had already been working at my current law firm for eight years, when I had the good luck of being assigned legal assistant to an incoming attorney. Little did I know that I had won the jackpot! It’s not every day that you come across a person that you respect on every level – professional, personal, and spiritual. This is a person who genuinely cares about the details in my life and the lives of others. He has a big heart and freely shares it by helping others, whether clients, the staff and attorneys, or the broader community...He loves and respects the field of law, sharing his expertise and giving liberally and from the heart...Bosses are often the primary reason for people either loving or leaving their jobs, so I will never take for granted my good fortune of working for someone who possesses so much talent and integrity, and still has a sense of humor. It is my pleasure and honor to nominate this exemplary leader for Boss of the Year."
