This is Where I Leave You, by Jonathan Tropper.
Texas Christian University and LSU Law School.
My father, Stephen, is a professor of Business Management at the University of Louisiana; my mother, Teri, is Assistant Director of the University of Louisiana Lab School; my sister, Jessica, is a senior marketing associate with AAA Travel Agency; my brother-in-law, Nick, is in his third year of residency in psychiatry.
What was the turning point that made you decide to become an attorney?
I wish I had a great story, but I graduated with a B.S. in psychology, and I knew that wouldn't pay the bills unless I have some form of a graduate degree, so law school it was!
