Having started the real estate development and mobile app businesses and breaking out on your own to start a law firm, you describe yourself as an entrepreneur. Is that a term not often associated with lawyers?
That's probably safe to say. I think most lawyers suffer from paralysis by analysis. There are a number of attorneys who, if they had the opportunity, would love to practice on their own. They say, "I wish I had the guts to do that." There's a risk, right? The phone might not ring. To start your own company is a big leap. They will advise other companies all day on how to do it right, but they won't do it themselves.
Starting and succeeding in and failing in business makes me a better attorney. I understand what it's like in real life.
