Although I knew I wanted to be a lawyer, it was difficult to get there. My family could not afford to send me to college and I paid my tuition myself. In addition, I met and married my wife when I was 21 and we had both our children by the time I was 24. Consequently, I could not spend all my disposable income on my education.
I began college at 18 and finished when I was 27. During this time I often worked 80 hour weeks to support my family. I also knew I would need nearly all A's on my college transcript to obtain admission to law school, in addition to working long hours I spent my spare time in school, and I did not see my family often. When I went to law school, my wife and children stayed in our hometown so my wife would not receive a reduction in her salary.
Meanwhile, I went to school in another city and drove home on the weekends. During my second year, my family moved with me to law school. I finally graduated law school when I was 31: It had taken many years to reach my goal and lots of hard work. These experiences taught me the value of patience and tenacity. Because of this, I am a better lawyer today.
I enjoy politics, sports, movies, family, and pets; particularly dogs.
