My greatest talent as a lawyer is that I remember the reasons why I became a lawyer.
My greatest accomplishment as a lawyer is working to enjoin the first Muslim travel ban.
The best advice I have for new lawyers is to ask questions—some things don’t make sense and asking why is the only way to figure that out.
A funny story that happened to me while practicing: I was interviewed on camera by Univision about one of my cases when I worked in legal aid. Unfortunately, I only realized when I got home that my dress was on backward.

The most memorable trip I ever took was to Montrose, Colorado, where I lived in a tent for the summer and worked on an organic farm owned by two chain-smoking sisters.
I enjoy reading People magazine; i.e., the New Yorker of tabloids.
My best recipe I make at home is fried rice.
My fitness routine is non-existent, but used to be my bike commute to work.
