As an attorney I understand that I am in a privileged and important position to inform others and help those around me. Being involved in the law industry is more than a career, it is a responsibility. Across the many clients I have served I have learned that I am in the unique place that they need to rest on in order to reach legal justice. If it weren’t for my drive to help others and share the knowledge I have I would never have founded Duren Law Offices, which I now operate in order to continue such a mission. In this article I discuss why it is so important to help others in the legal field and how this issue has been overlooked by many people in my position.
Becoming an attorney is no simple task and it takes years of education and experience to reach the level that I have come to in the present. To be sure, I made many errors along the way but they have helped me ultimately to better my practice and serve yet more customers. One error that I have never observed, however, is that of failing to be personable and assisting to my clients. Too many times have I witnessed attorneys outside of my practice talking unprofessionally to their clients or simply not giving them the time that they deserve in their cases. Being witness to such things was part of my stimulation in the formation of Duren Law Offices and it continues to be a foundation of my philosophy today.
So what does it mean to really assist people in the legal field? Partly it means sharing the education and knowledge that one has absorbed over the years. At Duren Law Offices we observe only the highest quality professionals and make sure that knowledge is in check before any proceedings go underway. By doing this I am personally able to oversee the facts that clients are told. I am certain that informing the public about their legal rights and their options in the world of law is essential to creating a fair and open platform for all. At Duren Law Offices I have tried to achieve this, and I can only advise other attorneys to follow in the examples that great attorneys across time have set.
