1126. A Day in the Life: What's It Really Like to Be a Business Litigator?
“Other than my uncle who was a lawyer, and watching lawyers perform on TV series, I had no experience with the profession at all. Once I began my law studies at the University of California’s Hastings College of Law in San Francisco, I gravitated to the practice of litigation because I found it very energizing and demanding. The idea of being challenged every day by a lawyer on the other side of a case who was using the best of his talents and experience to present his client’s position, and knowing that I always had to be my very best, I could not imagine a more gratifying career. I’m happy to report that my career as a business litigator has proven to be everything I hoped it would be and more.”
