"GW is really the foundation of everything that I am, everything that I've accomplished, everything that I'm interested in. It was the beginning of a wonderful life here in Washington. I've practiced law, first with the Justice Department and then in private practice. I am involved in many nonprofit foundations ... My GW education never ended since I've left."
