when i was at college at the university
00:06
of kansas believe it or not i was an art
00:09
major
00:10
and
00:11
i wanted to go into architecture and
00:13
design
00:14
and my grandfather uh was an architect
00:17
and
00:19
he
00:20
didn’t think i had the talent to do that
00:23
and he told me once he said you’re not
00:25
going to be a designer you’re going to
00:27
be a lawyer
00:28
and i laughed it off and thought okay
00:30
well grandpa doesn’t know
00:32
sure enough my grades started slipping i
00:35
clearly was not talented in art and
00:37
design
00:38
i went into business uh for lack of any
00:41
other
00:42
avenue and
00:45
i took a business law class and
00:47
absolutely fell in love
00:49
and went on to law school and
00:52
that was the only time i’ve ever seen my
00:54
grandfather cry was at my law school
00:57
graduation um
00:59
and he was right
01:05
empathy
01:06
um
01:07
we’re in a very tough
01:10
practice
01:11
we deal with individuals who are under
01:13
an extreme amount of stress
01:16
um financial turmoil
01:18
and it’s hard on folks
01:20
and
01:21
if you don’t have some understanding
01:25
and empathize with what they’re going
01:27
through and try to make the process as
01:29
smooth as possible
01:31
then i wouldn’t be doing my job right
01:33
and we try to keep things casual and
01:35
lighthearted considering the heavy
01:37
nature of the of
01:39
you know the practice
01:41
just make sure that our clients know
01:43
that
01:44
we’re there
01:45
we understand and
01:48
uh we’re trying to make it as easy as
01:49
possible to go through
01:56
well i do a lot of litigation work um on
02:00
the plaintiff side
02:01
and
02:03
the most rewarding
02:05
would be
02:07
when i
02:08
get a settlement from the defendant or
02:11
multiple defendants
02:12
and i hand them that check and you could
02:15
just see the stress come off their
02:16
shoulders
02:17
and they’ve got you know a little extra
02:20
money in their pocket that’s one of the
02:21
most important things i remember
02:23
i was around christmas time one year and
02:26
my client came in to pick up their
02:28
settlement check
02:29
and she told me
02:31
now i can buy christmas gifts for my
02:33
children and my grandchildren
02:35
and it just made my heart swell i was
02:38
that’s
02:39
what makes everything worthwhile
