I love my job.
I am enjoying my career.
This week I was asked to consider a case for representation where I literally wanted to drop everything and run to court to file a lawsuit.
I actually almost did exactly that…
Sometimes, I am reminded of my WHY. So here they are:
Because I love rooting for the under dog
Because I hate seeing people get taken advantage of
I believe people with disabilities have the right to a full and fulfilling life
Because Housing is a basic necessity
Because mental illness does not mean one’s life is over
Because ageism is real
Because people are so bold and so evil
Because I am a child of the most high
Because I was called to this
Because I promised God that if I could just pass the bar, I would be committed to giving back to the world in a real way
Because broke people need lawyers
Because broken people need lawyers too
Because I love a good story
Because I love 2nd chances
Because I believe the justice system can work if the playing field is leveled
Because I love people
Because I can’t wait to fight with words on paper
Because there is always a way to play fair
I could go on forever.
But I just thank God that he has given me the space to do what I believe is my best craft — lawyering
