Ashunda’s Answer

I always knew I wanted a career that was impactful and could change the lives of those around me. I served almost 12 years in the military before deciding to go to law school. My career as an attorney continues to allow me to change lives. I have no regret, as I did it my way and I wouldn't change one thing. Remember: "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." Winston Churchill

Victoria C.’s Answer

Good question. I did not know I wanted to be a lawyer until I was in my mid-twenties. I gained a passion for litigation in 2012 when my family suffered a civil injustice relating to medical malpactice. This personal experience sparked my interest in becoming a lawyer and has added value to each case.

Nicole O.’s Answer

I didn't know I wanted to be an attorney from the start. All I knew was that I loved helping people, hated poverty, and hated injustice. I got my undergrad degree in Public Relations. There is a type of PR called lobby which to me is kind of like unrefined lawyering. When you lobby for something you're seeking to influence to someone's mindset on a subject matter. Before graduating college, I did a PR Campaign on human trafficking. After college, I realized that I didn't just want to influence a mindset but I wanted to change a culture. I felt that the law was a powerful tool to do that. So that's when i began my journey to becoming a lawyer.

Job’s Answer

I was told I would be an attorney from a young age, and did become a successful trial attorney for 20 years, but was not fulfilled personally.
I then opened a construction company that was very successful and finally sold it for a substantial amount of money and retired.
I became bored after 5 years and attained a position as the real estate manager at a large solar developer.
Today I am very happy with my position and quality of life.
I had no idea my career would bring me where I am today
