Who We Represent and Why We Practice Law
We represent real people. People from all walks of life. People with all sorts of problems. The one thing our clients have in common is they come to us with a serious problem — often the biggest problem of their life. Most people who see us have never before needed a lawyer. All of them are looking for someone they can trust.
We represent people who make minimum wage. We represent presidents of companies. We represent people who are unemployed. Men, women, and children of all races, religions, and ideologies.
I love meeting new clients. Before discussing legal issues, we often talk family, sports, growing up, etc. Then we talk about the problem that brings them to our office. It’s always a serious problem that may affect the rest of their life. I look them in the eye and listen. I think about the law and what advice I would give my brother if he were in this person’s situation. We make a plan together. Next comes hard work.
My favorite part of my job is the end. I love seeing a client’s smile and shaking hands and sending them off with a check, a problem solved, or their freedom. My goal is always to say goodbye knowing we have stood up for our client’s cause; fought for fairness; and achieved a just result.
We practice law to help people.
