The quality I most like in a lawyer is … honesty.
The lawyer I most admire is … Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, who retired in 1991 after helping bring the court through some of the biggest civil rights cases in its history.
If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … U.S. ambassador to Barbados.
I almost quit the law because … I was convinced I had bought the winning Powerball ticket.
The SCOTUS justice I’d most like to meet is … Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
My courtroom walkup music would be … “Lose Yourself” by Eminem.
I can’t believe more people haven’t read … The Declaration of Independence. NPR recently tweeted the Declaration of Independence line by line, and some users thought it was “propaganda.”
My most bizarre talent is … juggling. I taught myself to do it as a kid. Every time I see a bowl of fruit, I just want to start juggling.
The talent I wish I had is … the ability to hear what men are really thinking.
The most fascinating person I ever met is … Barack Obama. I attended a re-election fundraiser in Culver City, California, in 2011 where he spoke at Sony Studios, and I got the chance to say hello and shake his hand. I have never seen someone make less of an effort to charm a room and yet so instantly establish a connection—at least with me. Yes, I’m sure it helped that he was the most powerful man in the world.
My favorite TED talk is … “The Power of Introverts” by Susan Cain. I am an introvert probably 60 percent of the time. The best way to put it is I am not always the best conversation starter, but I will engage in the conversation once it is started.
My motto is … If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together.
I wish I had invented … Facebook.
If I had a morning show, my co-host would be … Ellen DeGeneres.
The last TV show I binge-watched was … House of Cards.
Nothing cheers me up like … reading the latest Cosmopolitan with a cosmopolitan cocktail.
My colleagues would be surprised to know that … you cannot tear me off an open dance floor.
