Well, you know, when you’ve had the type of experience that I’ve been able to enjoy throughout my professional career you find out that there’s several things that happen one is you get more involved into bar development or teaching other lawyers how to practice law, kind of being a lawyers lawyer. And so the certifications that I have I’m board certified in personal injury trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. I’m also board certified as the civil trial advocate of the National Board of Trial Advocacy. And I’ve had leadership positions I’ve been past vice president of the Houston Trial Lawyers and also past vice president of the Texas Trial lawyers and have done a lot of legislative work in teaching the legislators how proposed laws might impact clients that haven’t yet had a claim yet. Many times they don’t find out that they don’t’ have any rights or they were taken away from them and it’s too late. And so I’ve been on different boards trying to make sure that bad laws don’t get passed.
