I decided that I wanted to be a lawyer when I was twelve years old. I didn’t have a backup plan. Nobody ever said, "Well, what if you don't get into law school?" I've always known that law was the profession for me.
When I graduated from law school in 2007, I got a job working as an attorney for a general practice firm that handled real estate cases. This was transactional work. You met your client at the signing, and then they were gone. Maybe you would hear from them a decade later. Maybe not.
