You have played an integral role in Covington’s diversity recruiting efforts. How will the firm benefit long-term from a diverse attorney population?


I firmly believe that as lawyers, we benefit from practicing in a diverse, multi-cultural work environment. Diversity broadens our perspectives, enriches our lives and makes us better people. It also makes us better lawyers with stronger capabilities to serve our global client base.
