When my family talks politics.

Belly Up with the Bar.

Focus on determining what interests you and make those contacts before you are applying for a job.

Best thing about being a lawyer:

The work is at a really rewarding intellectual level (sometimes).

Not be mocked as much for my horrific golf swing.

 

What is the biggest challenge facing attorneys today?

The lawyer jokes are so sophisticated these days.
