Your most embarrassing date moment?
I went on a semi-blind date that I immediately regretted. It must have showed because he finally blurted out "this is clearly going poorly, can I ask what I did wrong?" I felt awful and thought he was pretty brave for asking, so we spent the next twenty minutes dissecting why we were incompatible. At least he had a sense of humor about it!
What career accomplishment are you most proud of?
In April of 2014 my remarkable colleagues and I, opened Kirkland's Houston office. We had no idea if we could live up to the expectations the firm had for our growth and success, but within the first year we had expanded to more than 40 lawyers, exceeded even our best case financial projections and were building out the client base in ways no one could have imagined possible. We've assembled a team of amazingly talented lawyers that I am honored to work with.
