Attorney and Owner
I began my career in 2011 at the height of the recession. Very few law jobs were available in any field. A few years earlier, law firms had laid off attorneys for the first time in history. I luckily found a job and started off practicing criminal law at the public defender’s office. Many of my law school classmates didn’t find work for months. Pretty much as soon as I got there I was unhappy because there was a huge disconnect between what I had dreamed about when I went to law school and the reality of being a lawyer. I had dreamed about going to law school and coming out and making a difference in people’s lives, but in reality, practice at the public defender’s office meant a huge case load with very little time to meet with clients let alone find out what would make a difference in their lives. After 9 months at the public defender’s office I learned that my wife was pregnant with our first child. At that time, I decided that I needed to leave my first job and start my own law firm. I didn’t know exactly what kind of law firm I want to have so I just took whatever cases came through the door. I got a mentor and ran my practice by just stabbing in the dark. I billed hourly just like all law firms do. And as you can probably imagine at $300.00 per hour, my clients wanted me to do everything as quickly as possible with as little communication as possible. They didn’t want to talk about their kids and my kids and they were afraid to call because they didn’t know how much the call would cost them and whether it was worth it.
