I was around 13 when I first said I wanted to be a lawyer. My mom would watch Law and Order and I thought, ‘I can do that, I like to speak in public and I like to argue.’ I was always interested in law, and even had a political science minor. After I got my legal secretary job, and I saw what lawyers do on a daily basis, I was convinced this was the career for me.
After college I wasn’t sure I wanted to stay in Cleveland, but the more time I spent here, especially downtown, the more I wanted to stay here. Attending Cleveland-Marshall allowed me to be close to my family friends and build a career in my hometown.
I was torn between attending law school at night or going full time. I chose to go full time so that I could direct my full-time attention to school. I was concerned about paying for law school, but Cleveland- Marshall is a great value.
Receiving a scholarship allowed me to attend school full time, which I am very grateful for. The support of my family, friends and loved ones has been the most important factor in my success in law school. I could not have done it without them.
I would ask them how serious they are about attending law school. Law school takes over your life for three years. If you are ready to work hard, and truly want to be a lawyer, then I would say go for it! Don’t be afraid to ask for help, and of course, GO TO CLEVELAND- MARSHALL!
