Valentine’s Day love extends to the practice of law, helping real people too
Valentine’s Day is a time to show appreciation to those close to you. But such appreciation can also apply to your career. As a Michigan personal injury lawyer, I’ve had the opportunity to really help victims of car accidents and truck accidents with very serious injuries. To me, there is tremendous honor in this.
I’m able to be there for people who are fighting to keep their homes, when they are in danger of losing everything. Michigan auto insurance companies routinely cut off vital benefits like No-Fault insurance wage loss, for no reason. Without bad faith laws, the most they have to do is pay what they should have paid to begin with, plus a little penalty interest (not exactly a big stick when Michigan’s insurance companies are making record-breaking profits).
I’m also able to fight for people who have been harmed and seriously injured; and I make our roads and families safer by taking on bad trucking companies that ignore mandatory safety regulations and push truckers to drive too long and too fast. I support and counsel my clients, and I help turn their lives around when there is no one else who can help them
That’s why I love being a personal injury lawyer.
I found this article on the American Bar Association Journal called “Why I love being a lawyer (seriously).”
The author says, “We’ve all seen the downbeat headlines–surveys show as many as half of all lawyers wouldn’t enter the profession if they had it to do over, wouldn’t recommend their children become lawyers, would rather be digging ditches or breaking rocks. As the profession struggles to recover from the Great Recession, it’s certainly not easy being an attorney.
“But what about the other half of the profession–the half that doesn’t grab the headlines, that finds satisfaction in their jobs? There’s still much to recommend the practice of law, starting with serving clients and the public good. This story is a valentine to the profession, reminding us–in the words of ordinary lawyers from across the nation–why being a lawyer can be an extraordinary calling.”
