Where did you go to law school and where are you currently working?

Why did you become a lawyer?
My father is an attorney. Growing up I would follow him around the courthouse and to meetings. I saw how he helped people get through some of their hardest times and how appreciative his clients were of his help. I became a lawyer so that I can help people when they need it the most.
