Best Thing About Being a Lawyer: The unpredictability. No two days are ever the same at my job. One day, I might be arguing in federal court about a patent infringement suit. The next, I may be advocating at the PTAB, requesting that the Board keep my clients’ patents valid. I may even be drafting and negotiating agreements for authors and movie producers. Being a lawyer means using your gifts in a wide variety of contexts to help people, and I am grateful I have that privilege.
