Hello. I find the practice of law very satisfying. I have been doing it for quite some time now and the thing I enjoy the most is helping my clients achieve their business goals. There are many different areas of law and it took me quite some time to figure out the specific one that was most satisfying to me. It turned out to be entertainment law and I work with a lot of very interesting documentary filmmakers, television producers, studios and tv networks. When I first got out of law school, I thought I wanted to be a litigator and it turned out that I didn’t like it at all. I found all of the fighting very unsatisfying. I now know that creating positive working relationships between different parties by way of contracts and joint ventures is very satisfying. At first, practicing law is very time consuming but over time you can have a very balanced life and also make a good living. I am really happy with the choice that I made both in terms of going to law school and practicing law. Also, I was a theater and political science major in college and I was happy to learn that there aren’t any specific majors you need to have in college to go to law school.
