When I first got out of law school, I went to a large defense firm where we did exclusively civil defense in automobile cases, medical malpractice cases, construction site injuries, that sort of thing.

And that was terrific exposure to the civil, personal injury practice. I left there after about four years and had the opportunity to work at two really top flight plaintiff’s personal injury firms. Arguably two of the best firms in the city. They were smaller firms, and you got kind of thrown into the mix pretty quickly so that you were trying cases fairly quickly. So, within a couple months of leaving the big defense firm, I was trying cases in the Cook County Courts, which was pretty much what I wanted to do.
