We Love Our Jobs

February 22, 2010

Many lawyers don’t like what they do. They tell their children not to become lawyers.


It is not an easy job. Basically, you are taking on other people’s problems for a career. God knows, we have plenty of problems ourselves. It is high stress, long hours and less lucrative than the public thinks.


My law school professor said, “If you don’t like hard work, leave now! This is the nature of the legal profession.”

Yet we love what we do. You couldn’t have a more wonderful job. Every day people sit across from us presenting the challenging and frightening problems they are facing. And every day we fight for them to try to help them through these intimidating problems.


We have had a lot of success and we have helped a lot of people make their lives better and their loved ones lives better.

For us, there is no better feeling or cause.
