Degree and Year:
O'Connell & Aronowitz, PC
Professional Background:I am an attorney admitted to practice law in New York and Massachusetts.
How has being an English graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?:I am an attorney practicing in health law, which means that I represent health care providers in many contexts. I am most frequently found reading and writing at my desk, and the clarity of thinking and expression I learned as a student of English at Duke have been integral to my success. I think back to the rigorous editing that I engaged in as a Duke student every time I revise another draft, and each time my writing appears before a court or a client. I so value the curiosity and love of language that the English Department fostered.
