“As someone who started at Purple early in their career, it’s incredible to witness the growth in scope, scale and types of clients Purple serves. I feel as if I’ve been able to grow along with the firm, which is special to experience.”

“While very cliché, it’s true that there are no two days exactly the same at Purple. So we all have to be extremely nimble, and move with ease from issue to issue, complex subject matter to complex subject matter. Which we do.”

“I was taught to look at people not only by how they present themselves, but how they treat others around them. I find that to be a pretty good indicator of character.”
