I decided to become a lawyer because of some important family members who were lawyers. My grandfather, who passed away at the age of 99, was the longest licensed practicing attorney in the state of Illinois at the time of his death. As a child, I watched him in court, I talked to him about his cases, and I saw – he was fortunate, he lived for a very long time and had a successful career, and I saw the difference that he made representing literally generations of families. We were lucky enough in his later years to be able to work on a case together and that was a proud moment for me and I know for him too.
