What do you throw a drowning lawyer?

…His partners

We’ve all heard lawyer jokes before, most of which end in the lawyer’s demise. However, lawyers are who people go to when their lives have been turned upside down by some catastrophic event. It’s these unforeseen events you may not have prepared for which a lawyer will help you through.

When I decided to go to law school in 2012, many people told me I was crazy and some even tried to talk me out of it. They told me it was too expensive, the job market was slim and I would never get hired. But this was my passion, something I believe I was meant to do. Therefore, I didn’t pay too much attention to the cost and didn’t care about the job market statistics.

Fast forward 3 years to May 2015, and graduation. It was hard to be excited when the future was so unknown. Luckily, I was brought on as a law clerk by The Ruth Law Team. It was there I learned the ins-and-outs of a law firm. Initially I was worried about the atmosphere, but everyone welcomed me with open arms. After a couple of months as a law clerk they asked me to join their team of personal injury lawyers. Although it was an attorney who brought me into the firm, it is all the hard working, genuinely nice people at The Ruth Law Team who made me want to stay. I can’t wait for what the future holds, and I’m so happy to call this place home.
