What I’ve Learned from Working with Attorneys

The most important thing that I have discovered during this journey working with attorneys is that they are a necessity for our communities. Not everyone has the desire to go to law school. Not everyone is willing to subject themselves to the years it takes to earn those initials behind their name. I would trust the team of attorneys we have on staff with any legal matter that would ever come up during my lifetime....

Figure It Out

We have been exploring the word "mentoring" but for the purposes of this article, I would like the word "Coaching" instead. To me, mentoring implies one person, probably someone who has been doing the job for many years and is overseeing every aspect of a person's job. But coaching has another view for me. If you look at a coach or a teacher they go through a process of working with a student or team....

A Day in the Life of an Attorney

A day in my life is nothing like what you've seen on Law and Order, How to Get Away with Murder, or the Good Wife. It is not showing up in a perfectly tailored suit, delivering academy award worthy closing arguments to a jury, or negotiating high profile agreements in a fancy boardroom. This may be the life of some lawyers, but mine is a bit different....

Are you ready to get lucky?

When you think the small things can be skipped, when there are projects that keep being kicked down the road, when you are frustrated with the way that strategy and operations require intentionality, remember that these are part of the development of your skills, your focus, your hard work, and your determination. They will make you ready for not just the everyday opportunities, but also for when it is your “lucky day”....

What’s the Point of Building Wealth?

Most of us have had a moment in our life that we imagined being wealthy. When I say wealthy, some of you may think about having money for a private jet. If you are like me and don't own a private jet, you might be interested in knowing that a new private jet can cost somewhere between 5 and 70 million dollars. At some point in our life, most of us have let our minds wonder about all the great things we would do if we were wealthy in the way that we as an individual define being wealthy. This can be a fun daydream for a few minutes, but we usually come back to earth and realize that we are probably not going to own a private jet in our lifetime....

6 Tips for Law Students

There is no formula for success. You know yourself better than anyone. There is no "one size fits all" approach to success. My suggestions? Take an upperclassman to coffee and pick their brain on what did and did not work for them. Be open with your classmates on how you are preparing and they will do the same. Be sure to take advantage of your school's peer tutoring services and try out a study group or two....

A Knight Is Sworn To Valor

As we often state, our core values are Trust and Integrity. What we are saying to ourselves, each other, our clients, our opponents and the world at large is: “You can trust my integrity.” But what does that mean? Lawyers are addressed with the surname “Esq.” which stands for Esquire, from the Latin for Knight. A couple of weeks ago, during a discussion, someone thought about the knight’s head chess piece that is our logo....
