U.S based lawyer
From lawyer story Lawyer

I grew up in South Florida with a German Mother and an African-American Father. I never really knew that my family was any different than anyone else’s family… until the world told me. When they did, when I was a child, it was often unkind. A teacher of mine, at some point, told me the story about the Lovings in Loving v. State of Virginia and how two brave, young volunteer attorneys from the American Civil Liberties Union took the criminal convictions of the Richard and Mildred Loving, after the interracial couple having committed the crime of simply loving one another despite their differences, to the Supreme Court and had bans on interracial marriage declared unconstitutional. Had it not been for those ACLU attorneys, Bernard S. Cohen and Philip J. Hirschkop, who took on this case, I may not have existed at all, as it shaped our laws and our culture toward acceptance of interracial unions. In realizing that two young eager attorneys made my very existence a possibility, I knew that I wanted to be a part of change in this country as we grow and become more open to ideologies once forbidden. To date, a picture of the Lovings hangs in my office, along with the quote originally written by Judge Bazile when asked to overturn the Lovings convictions : “Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix.” Although it is an ugly quote, it is but a reminder to me of how far we’ve come, how much the law can change and how much power I, as an attorney, have in my hands to perfect that.

Brynn Rovito

When I realized money was tight in law school I decided to sublet my NYC apartment on a nightly basis for cash and stay elsewhere. Even after I graduated from law school and moved to D.C. to work as Deputy General Counsel for Senate Sergeant at Arms, I still wasn't earning as much as I needed to live in the Nation's Capital. Similar to what I did in law school, I decided to sublet my apartment and stayed with friends. After listing my apartment on #facebook and #craigslist I decided to try #airbnb and it was then when I realized I could actually make a living renting apartments on airbnb and it would be more exciting than a desk job! That is when I moved to Hawaii and acquired apartments to rent. I currently have 3 units in Hawaii and 11 units in DC and am the owner of BPR Hospitality. While learning the law has been useful with my business transactions, the practice was not creative enough for me and I find it satisfying to help people out with their rental needs!

I teach an undergraduate moot court class at a local university. Each year a handful of students ask me if they should attend law school. My response is always the same-I advise them to intern at a law firm. The sad truth is that the day to day work of a lawyer is far less exciting and glamorous than arguing a landmark case before the Supreme Court. The fact is we all can't be Thurgood Marshall and billable hours are king. I learned this lesson the hard way. After two years of practicing law, I transitioned into a non-legal career. I now work for a federal agency conducting compliance evaluations. Public service is a noble pursuit and my work life balance is much improved. For all you wannabe lawyers out there, attending law school is a big decision. It is a huge investment of your time, money, and resources. Choose wisely. Alyne M. Butland, Esq.

From graduation onwards my interest towards law has been started, after completing graduation I did few research on law related firm and then I decided to become a advocate and to start my own consultancy. Am interested in taxation not in criminology nor in bankruptcy. I love the environment of corporate world. So i decided to choose taxation. As many of my friend work with corporate as there lawyer and few of them are advocate who only entertain corporate cases for different different company or firm. From my point of view this is the best profession in the world. Thank youRecently featured Articles:See also

I was determined to focus my practice on international business law during law school. However, after I interned in a business law firm in Sao Paulo, Brazil for a summer and lived out of a suitcase like a professional nomad, I found myself thinking more and more about my childhood home - Worcester, Massachusetts. I came to the realization that what would actually make me happy was to give myself to a community and help make community for others. After graduating and passing the Bar, I returned home to Worcester and joined a mid-size business law firm. I was and continue to be lucky for three reasons. First, the firm is well-established with experienced attorneys who continuously mentor me as I develop my transactional law practice. Second, the managing partners appreciate my enthusiasm for community service and encourage me to serve on multiple non-profit boards and to be engaged in the city. And third, the firm believes in a work/life balance that affords me an opportunity to travel internationally multiple times a year. I can visit Asia, Europe, and the Americas, and return to practice law in a community I love and that loves me back. I am truly one of the lucky ones. Mark Borenstein, Esq.

Nicole Luth

My path for pursuing law school was a bit of a blur. A part of me always wanted to be a lawyer, but I didn't pay much attention to that little voice until I woke up one morning with a sense of clarity that this was what I was meant to do and I was going to do it now. I had been working in the HR profession (and loved it!) for 3 years when I knew it was time for me to go back to school. So in January, I registered for the June LSAT and by April I had submitted applications to start in the fall of that same year. I had no idea if this was even a feasible plan, but I was going to try like hell to make it happen. I studied like crazy (going the self-study route), took the test in June, and within three days of receiving my results had been accepted by each school to start that fall term. I had a week to make a decision, and 3 weeks to pack up my life and move to start this new adventure. It was a total of 8 months from the time I decided to go to law school to the time I started classes. I guess the moral of my story is that when you know you’re ready, and you want something bad enough, you just make it happen. It was the best decision I've made, and would do it 100 times again!

Tre Meredith

It's funny how my worst times prepared me for my best years. I remember being a freshman in college only worried about partying and women....the best way to do that at the time was joining a fraternity. Very soon, I acquired exactly what I wanted but at the expense of my pride, education, and character. I remember getting a notification from my undergrad school letting me know that I was being placed on academic suspension because of a 0.0 GPA. I attempted to appeal that decision but my school continued to deny me. Specifically, I told my admissions counselor that I had dreams of going to law school. His reply was a heavy laugh and said I wouldn't be able to do it with my GPA. Eventually, I got back into school and refocused my efforts on succeeding. I was on the Dean's List for every semester upon my return. I went on to obtain my undergraduate degree, graduated in the top 10% of my law school class and I passed the bar on the first time. Now I'm running a successful solo firm with two employees and the ultimate bragging rights-- I can tell my counselor..."I did it!" -Tre Meredith, Esq.

Boxing gets me through life. For any aspiring lawyers: law school, and then building your practice is rewarding, but can also be draining and overwhelming. It is dangerously easy to neglect your personal life in favor of your profession. There is a great quote from a young author – “don’t throw away parts of yourself.” Don’t skip going to the gym, seeing friends and family, your hobbies, etc., to meet the demands of a legal career. If you do, you will wind up unhealthy, unhappy, and ultimately unsuccessful. All of your professional success flows directly from your efforts. You are the goose that lays the golden egg. I box because it keeps me healthy and balances my life. Don’t throw away the parts of you that make you who you are; embrace them! These are the things that will keep the golden goose healthy and producing for years to come. Jordan M. Jones, Esq.

Before attending law school I wanted to be a news broadcaster. I specifically recall the day I decided to go to law school. Then, I asserted I was more than just a pretty face that could read another's words on a prompter. Little did I know that nearly 7 years after becoming a lawyer I'd decide to expand upon the way the profession is practiced with the same argument. In 2013, I proclaimed that I was more than a savvy attorney since my gifts and talents far exceeded the ability to research and make a good argument. I honored my spiritual gifts to see the very essence of the beings in front of me. Allow them to recognize their karma and courageously rise above the patterns and conditioning wreaking havoc on their lives. More than a pretty face, stronger than a full proof argument I now help people realign their souls, reset their energy and reconnect to the energy that fuels lives - LOVE. Sarah A. Ouellette, Esq.

I am presently an Assistant State Attorney in Florida. I have been licensed for approximately three years. I think that one of the biggest issues that I struggled with both in law school and now is the large amount of debt that came along with my degree. When I came to Florida State College of Law my primary concern was going to a tier one law school. I was not worried about the hefty out of state price tag or how I was going to afford to pay the debt off after school. I now have a rather large amount of debt and I am rather uncertain as to how and when I will be able to pay it off. If I could have done it over again I would have studied much harder for the LSAT to get more scholarships and I would have went to a lower tier school if needed to end school with much less debt. The job market is tough regardless of what school you go to, and I do not believe that the benefit was worth the burden. Jessica Tehlirian, Esq.

Compelled by a strong urgency to advocate for the interest of others and to become a voice for those who are silenced, I decided to go to law school to study and become a lawyer. Little did I know that I would face academic challenges my first year and be expelled from the program. I spent the long, hot summer after my first year in law school advocating for myself and was ultimately re-admitted as a second year student that fall semester. I worked hard and graduated on schedule with my graduating class!

With that same tenacity and strength I've gained from my own struggles, I now fight to protect the interests of my clients and champion the cause of justice, equality, and advancement in the community. At Champions for Justice we care, and because we care, Champions for Justice is always there fighting for you!

I went to law school knowing I was either going to be an Army line officer or an Army Judge Advocate (lawyer). I was lucky enough to be accepted as a lawyer just before graduation and I have enjoyed nearly every minute of being a Judge Advocate.

While the student debt has made my finances much tighter than every other officer of my rank who does not have a law degree (and student loans), I get to be a lawyer and a Soldier. I have been a prosecutor, defense attorney, government appellate attorney, and counsel for an artillery unit. The Army has sent me to Korea, Afghanistan, Japan, Kuwait, Iraq, Germany and all over the United States.

The experience as an attorney in combat cannot be duplicated, during a contested armed robbery trial in Iraq, the courtroom needed cleared as the indirect fire warning system went off, indicating the base was under attack. We spent a few minutes in a bunker, and then resumed the trial. Those few moments will forever be etched in my mind as the epitome of being a Soldier Lawyer.

The breadth of knowledge required is incredibly daunting, but the opportunity to try something new in a new place every 2-3 years has been a wonderful experience. Sean Fitzgibbon, Esq.

Angel Murphy

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” The Sixth Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees criminal defendants the right to a public trial without unnecessary delay, the right to an attorney, the right to an impartial jury, and the right and the right to confront their accusers. Of these guarantees I believe that the right to an attorney is the most important. After recently starting my own criminal and family law practice, I have acquired a better understanding of the importance for an individual to obtain competent legal counsel when faced with criminal prosecution and the deprivation of any other social liberties. I believe that everyone deserves an attorney who is competent, qualified, experienced, and ready to zealously advocate on their behalf, notwithstanding their financial status, race/ethnicity, the heinousness of the offense, or the specific facts surrounding their case. This is why I take a personal approach to lawyering by devising a creative legal strategy for each client and for each case, regardless of his or her socio-economic status. I enjoy helping my clients face and overcome their personal and legal challenges. Prior to building my own practice, I served in the Corporate Finance Division for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and as a judicial law clerk for a prominent Prince George’s County, MD, Circuit Court judge.

I enjoy assisting in the fostering and development of community based rehabilitation opportunities for juveniles, and speaking to/advising youth to achieve their educational goals, which will allow them to obtain equality within and outside of the work force.

I decided to become an attorney at a young age. Having grown up with an immigrant single mom working two factory jobs, I saw the challenges she faced because she did not have a higher education. I wanted better for myself and better for her so I chose a profession in which I felt I could excel. Growing up, I loved to argue my point and I always won. This was not the case once I got to law school. Law school was a new atmosphere and more challenging than I expected. However, through studying diligently and seeking help and guidance from professors, I was able to improve academically and professionally. Law school primarily teaches you how to think like a lawyer, but in today’s legal world, you also need to know how to network and present your best self in everything that you do. I was fortunate enough to attend a law school where academia and networking are both made a priority. The jobs that I have obtained have all been through networking. I understand that the legal field is challenging, but the wins, when they happen, are extremely rewarding. Anyone in or considering the legal field who would like to chat more, feel free to contact me at LegalLatina2014@gmail.com or visit my website at www.LegalLatina.com.

Leila Nosrat
Leila Nosrat Leila Nosrat

I always knew I didn't want to practice law in a conventional way. That's why I started my own virtual law practice, Nosrat Law, to help entrepreneurs build online empires.

I majored in Business Law in undergrad and law school was sort of a natural next step for me (even though it took me 4 years to figure out.) Since both my siblings were already attorneys, I had a much easier time in law school. Having the right mentors is essential to law school success. But so many law students don't have this kind of support. And there's a lonely psychological struggle that every law student battles with, but never talks about. That's why, after I started my law practice, I decided to start Bar Prep Mindset and my YouTube channel Law with Leila TV, to help and mentor law students. I use years of experience, combined with the latest research in neuroscience, psychology and high performance to give students the best methods for studying, and more importantly, the Mindset they need to succeed, not only in law school and on the bar exam, but beyond...

My motto: Mindset is everything!
