Best Thing About Being a Lawyer: Lawyers are forced to think about the ways in which the facts of a case play to each side’s favor. Even more, defense attorneys need to anticipate their opponent’s position, theories, and overall strategy, in order to effectively create a defense. Often times one fact can cut both ways in an argument, and Alexandra’s favorite part about being a lawyer is strategizing in a team environment to provide creative solutions for her clients.
