As business director of Greenberg Traurig’s Florham Park, N.J., office, I deal closely with attorneys of all ages and career stages, and my experience has taught me that good lawyers of all ages have far more similarities than they have differences.

I won’t tell you my actual age, but I’ll give you a few hints. As a kid growing up at the dawn of the TV video game era, my idea of fun was staring wide-eyed at a screen that displayed what amounted to two vertical lines hitting a slow-moving ball back and forth; I was (at least subconsciously) forming career goals based on the glamorous characters on “L.A. Law”; and my first job after graduating college put me in close contact with a Syntrex memory card typewriter. (I vividly remember the day when the first computer made its way into my office because it took several workers and a small crane to hoist the monitor onto my desk.) If you haven’t already guessed, yes, I am a card-carrying member of Generation X, the label put on those of us born between 1965 and 1981, and — phew — I just made the cutoff!
