HELLO! My name is Devin and I am a lawyer living in Manhattan.
I tend to shy away from elaborate social introductions--mostly because I am an introvert, but also because the legal profession, as a whole, is fairly reserved. So don't tell my boss.
Why I'm here:
My journey to becoming a cryptocurrency enthusiast started with my husband. He is a developer and dabbles in all things internet.
See what I mean?
Anyways, my curiosity often leads to obsession, so what started out as some light Wikipedia reading soon turned into wallets, exchanges, and daily visits to coinmarketcap.com. Now, here I am making my social debut in the name of blockchains. How far I've come!
A little about me:
In a study of nature versus nurture, I'd probably be an outlier. The product of addicts, adopted, first to go to college, etc. I won't bore you with the details because I'm sure many of you have seen Lifetime movies before. However, out of that came an unshakable drive to right wrongs, if you will. A couple of degrees and lots of student loans later, I became a lawyer.
I believe people should be protected from industry irresponsibility and wrongdoing, which is why my legal career has focused primarily on environmental and mass tort litigation. I love the challenge of collective actions and the responsibility that representing hundreds of people brings. I think it is important to spread awareness, so you can expect to see lots of posts on the latest human health or environmental issue.
Don't worry though, it won’t be all business. I'm interested in everything.
