New Attorney Seeks Life After Law School

January 23, 2014

I got my results on Nov 1st, and I am happy to report that I passed the bar exam! I was licensed on Nov 1st, sworn in to the bar by a very kind local justice of the peace, Russ Casey, and have been working with my father in his law practice since then. You can see a picture or two of our office and the local courthouse on the firm website here.

Its been an exciting few months, even if we don’t consider the holidays, moving into an apartment, and family traveling as well. I’ve been 2nd chair on a few jury trials, accepted a court appointment, been reading lots of cases and statutes, and been giving people advice that they hopefully act upon for the betterment of their lives.

I’ll be honest (as I have to be according to the state rules/laws of being an attorney), it’s a lot of responsibility when people come to you looking for advice because people won’t pay attorney fees for unimportant matters. But! I wanted that responsibility because it meant I could do some of the good works God prepared for me to do, and that I would be well placed to see the results of that help in my client’s lives.

Its an exciting time. I feel blessed and thankful.
