The B-Side...

"I'm a lawyer because I like to solve life's problems, which are many ... but Life is not one of them. I like to be with friends and with whom awakens my critical sense. I like to listen to music ... from my time (good old Rock) and classic (Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi ...). to read: newspapers, magazines, biographies, history (20th century), and poetry ... (all roads will rhyme) I like to laugh ... but only of funny things and Joy."
