to me the most rewarding aspect
00:06
of practicing family law is being able
00:09
to advocate for families and for
00:11
children
00:12
whether that’s advocating for parental
00:14
rights through an appellate case
00:16
or advocating for children and parents
00:18
in a cps case
00:20
or representing children or parents who
00:22
are victims
00:23
of domestic violence being able to
00:26
advocate
00:27
for people who do not have the ability
00:29
to advocate for themselves
00:31
and using that advocacy to keep them
00:34
safe or benefit their lives in some way
00:37
is the most rewarding aspect to me

about practicing family law
