I have been a lawyer for almost 39 years, and the lawyers I know who aspired to become lawyers from an early age are all excellent lawyers and very successful. There will be days that you don't like it, but you will find your niche if your passion stays with you.
Warren recommends the following next steps:
- Read some biographies of famous lawyers or books by famous lawyers. Gerry Spence is a great trial lawyer and has written several books. Notorious RBG is the biography of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Yankee from Olympus is an old but charming book about Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. And The Wrong Man, by James Neff, is the gripping story of Sam Shepard, the Cleveland doctor who served ten years for the murder of his wife, a crime that he did not commit.
