Detroit Lawyer to Share Experience with Wayne State University Law School Students
Tonight I will be speaking to a Wayne State University Law School trial advocacy class, taught by Michigan Court of Appeals Judge Elizabeth Gleicher. As a personal injury attorney handling car accidents, I’m going to be sharing real-life advice with the law students on how to be a successful litigator and trial lawyer. I plan to use a mock auto accident case.
Greg Gromek of Plunkett Cooney will be speaking on how he would defend the case from an insurance defense perspective.
Whenever I teach law school students, I always stress that personal injury law can be incredibly rewarding. It’s why so many of us wanted to become lawyers to begin with – to really help people. To make a difference in people’s lives. I can honestly say I have touched the lives of hundreds of people over the last 16 years, and I’ve helped people who lost everything and were depending on me to protect them. It’s incredibly gratifying.
Most of Michigan Auto Law’s clients are seriously injured or are mourning a loved one that’s been seriously injured or killed. They’ve lost so much — medical benefits, wage loss, and they are in pain every day and may never be able to return to work. They’re depending on us to help them recover and live again.
I’m going to tell the students tonight that there’s a lot to learn about the technical aspect of representing victims of car accidents and truck accidents, but a strong desire to help people must be the foundation for any good personal injury attorney.
