And you definitely CAN NOT FAKE IT.
Having worked in the legal arena since I was 14 years old, I have been very fortunate to have worked for, with and against some of the best legal minds and genuinely good people over the years.
You can learn a great deal from books, and then you can learn how to apply that information from people. Good people practice good law.
I strive everyday to practice good law, based on education and learning from both paper and people, each complimenting the other and ensuring my client's get the best of both worlds.
