My Career Path
After I been growing through the years I finally decided to pick the career path to be a lawyer and study in School of Law University of Austin, Texas. I selected this career because I have the need to help others out and to the best I can to achieve this. I also know that to be an important lawyer I know I have to study for 8 years. I know that this university is going to take me where I want to be. I know that during my high school experience I have to have a high GPA to achieve my goal to enter this school.
I knew I wanted to study this course because helping others out is something I need to do. I learned that I have to study all the laws and also know how the government runs and how can I help my client so they are innocent. I think that the hardest part of this job is that even though if you don't agree with your client you still have to help them out. Also it is part of your job even if you agree or disagree.
Most of the lawyers get paid between $50,000 and $250,000 a year. If you want to get the middle salary then it will be $113,000 a year.

Some of the cons is that being an insurance defense attorney and litigator you need a job security.Based on her experience she says that the biggest challenge is the working hours.
