I love tennis, running and all Ole Miss sports. (I graduated from the University of Mississippi School of Law.) All three require focus and stamina. Those attributes carry over to my practice. My focus is always in developing a strategy that best achieves the client’s objective. The outcome then becomes a matter of execution and finishing strong, just like in a match or race.
