The Story of an Average Lawyer
Q: Hi. Nice to meet you. What is your name, age, and occupation?
A: Hello, I am Casey, I am 48 years old, and I am an injury lawyer.
Q: What was the first job you wanted while growing up?
A: While growing up, I always wanted to be involved in sports. The job I wanted most would either be an athletic trainer for football, or a sports announcer, since I liked speaking.
What high school and what college did you go to?
A: I went to Romeoville High School, and The University of Illinois.
Q: Where was your first home out of college?
A: Out of College, I had a studio apartment in Chicago, right next to Wrigley field. Even though it was probably too small for me, I enjoyed being in the downtown area.
Q: How many jobs did you go through until you found this one?
A: Well, I used to be a lawyer for another law firm in Chicago. Once I moved into the Aurora area, I realized that after a while my job was too far to be driving an hour each way, and I wanted to be closer to home. I decided to open up my own law firm closer to home so I could be near my family and spend more time with them.
Q: How many years have you owned your own law firm?
A: I have owned my own law firm for around 12 years.
Q: Are you happy with workers?
A: Yes, I am very happy to see how far we have come as a firm in the time that we have been together. We have a great team of lawyer’s and workers.
Q: What is your favorite part about your job?
A: My favorite part of my job is probably helping out other people, who are hurt and are in need of assistance.
Q: What’s your least favorite part about your job?
A: My least favorite part about my job is firing people. I also am disappointed when I lose a case in court because then I feel like a weight has been put on my shoulders since I haven’t helped the person who was injured get anywhere.
Q: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
A: I see myself still working hard at my job, because simply it makes me happy and I wouldn’t want any other job.
Q: What are some benefits and non-beneficial parts of your job?
A: Benefits are it’s a great job, I get to work with great people every day, and I love the feeling of knowing I helped someone other than myself to get better. Non beneficial parts are long and hard work days, which sometimes don’t end until 10 at night.
