I love practicing law because of the people I meet. Our clients are creative, passionate, savvy and fun. Each day presents new challenges and adventures. I enjoy working with clients to find innovative ways to protect their business and help them succeed. Beyond legal counsel, I have helped many clients find new opportunities, as well as make beneficial connections.
I have a passion for getting things across the finish line. I enjoy working with clients to find creative ways to get transactions completed. I know that deadlines are important and made for a reason, and I always do my best to meet them.
I value honesty, loyalty, and dependability. Being a great lawyer is about vastly more than the work, it’s about who you meet and the relationships you build along the way. I am originally from Syracuse, NY and graduated from Fredonia State University of New York with a B.A. in English and minor in political science. I spent a large amount of my time on the volleyball court as a collegiate athlete and loved every moment of being part of a great team. I then attended Syracuse University College of Law where I had the opportunity to complete internships in new cities like Washington, D.C., and Charlotte, NC.
I was born and raised in Tennessee, where I grew up in close-knit community. Although I didn’t know from the start that I wanted to practice law, I knew that I had a passion for helping others. Learning about people – their unique cultures, business situations and how I can help them attain their goals – intrigues me. I have gained a conviction for assisting others through complex situations that life may bring.
My favorite part about practicing law is using my creativity to help people solve problems and achieve their goals. A self-proclaimed neat freak, it’s especially rewarding for me to organize complex transactions. I enjoy the process of researching the issues, digging into the details, piecing together what’s important, and then dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. As a former journalist, I have a deep appreciation for clear and timely communication.
Using my legal education and experience to help people find creative and personalized solutions is my passion. I enjoy connecting with clients and providing them with an unparalleled legal experience. With each case, I seek to achieve my clients’ goals while educating my clients throughout the process, from start to finish. I seek to challenge myself every day and strive to build connections for others in the real estate community and beyond.
Our firm began in the dining room of a small home in west Charlotte. It was the fall of 2012, and my wife, Anna and I had just adopted our second daughter. YooRan was getting used to her new family and her new country, having been born in South Korea. Her older sister, NiuNiu, had come home from China only two years earlier. My beautiful and brave daughters are my inspiration and heroes. So I honored them in McMillan PLLC’s logo.
