About me

About Me

Since 2003, I have helped hundreds of law school applicants pursue their dreams. Before founding Top Law Coach and writing the Law Admissions Lowdown blog for U.S. News & World Report, I was an admissions consultant and LSAT tutor for JDMission, Powerscore, and EssayEdge.

 

Since graduating Yale and Harvard Law, I have worked as a writer and legal scholar focused on promoting justice and fighting corruption at institutions like the World Bank, Columbia Law School, and Princeton University. I have taught at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and practiced global finance law at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe in New York. I have researched human rights and policy reforms in more than 20 countries worldwide, from Cambodia to Nigeria. My writing has earned a Fulbright Fellowship and appeared in the New Yorker, the Harvard ReviewPolicy and Society, and ForeignPolicy.com

 

The clients I help to clear hurdles and sharpen their voice sustain my own advocacy work and remind me that a law degree is a hard-earned honor. I feel grateful for each client I have cheered across the finish line to become my legal peer. More than ever, the rule of law depends on a new generation of lawyers.
