Won thrives on providing creative solutions to complex problems.

Drawn to the legal profession by a desire to help others, Won found his passion in the law’s ability to offer multiple solutions to a single problem. He relishes the opportunity to be a dependable source of advice and answers, always ready to reassure clients with a confident, “I’ve got this.”

Prior to law school, Won earned a master’s degree in international relations and served in the U.S. Navy. As Surface Warfare Officer, he honed his skills in forward planning and strategic thinking. His active duty service included leading electronic warfare operations and shipboard engineering onboard USS Higgins (DDG 76), giving him technical knowledge and focus for his legal practice. His military experience disciplined him with a strong sense of courage, integrity, and commitment to always put the mission first.

Today, Won brings his experience and skills to the Mass Tort & Product Liability practice area because of his desire to always come to court as a subject matter authority. He is particularly interested in issues that are heavily grounded in technology and science: as technologies progress, so do the legal issues surrounding them, creating new legal frontiers to be challenged.
