My COVID-19 Story

In the spring of 2020, after experiencing symptoms including chest pain and difficulty breathing, I tested positive for COVID-19 and was admitted into intensive care at the University of Chicago Medical Center. I was placed on a ventilator and soon developed complications with the blood circulation in my right hand, a condition that had been found to have a poor prognosis for recovery and had been associated with fatalities in several other COVID-19 patients. After treatment, the doctors ultimately determined that it was necessary to amputate the fingertips of my right thumb and index finger.


In total, I spent more than a month in hospital care, but I was lucky to make a full recovery and return to my passion for practicing law in the South Chicago area. I believe that I survived for a reason, and I have come out of my experience with a strengthened sense of purpose to help people however I can. I agreed to participate in a medical study on my specific conditions so that doctors can better treat similar patients, and as an attorney, I am even more committed to working with my clients to surmount overwhelming obstacles and achieve their goals of home and property ownership.

In February of 2021, I was able to get the vaccine and took advantage of the opportunity.
