I practice law by passion. I love business law because it allows me to accompany people in the realization of their dreams and their projects. I like to complete a transaction, whatever it is, and that my clients are happy with the result obtained.
I strongly believe in the importance of social involvement and, in fact, I have sat and I still sit on various boards of community and charitable organizations.
