What drives Jarome every day is his strong belief that the amount of money someone has should not dictate the justice they receive. It is for this reason that he has never worked for corporations, insurance companies or other interest groups. Instead, he thrives on helping the people who need it most—people who have suffered at the hands of others and deserve compensation.
