The Future

The Future

The Future. 

My Dad is getting ready to retire. He is counting down the days. He has got a calendar on his wall. He is marking the days off. So he is going to retire in about a year. Well, he plans on it. I always tease him and say, no you are not going to know what to do when you retire. You’ll be back, but I don’t know if he will. 

But the Future is Reece and I. 

We are going to be doing this. He will be doing mostly Criminal Law, just kind of how it is now, and I will be doing Personal Injury.

When I was little, we would go out somewhere, even the store and someone would recognize him or say Hi to him.  And he knows everybody in the community because he’s been here for so long and helped so many people.  

So it is kind of humbling, I guess you might say, to be out and say “I gotta live up to this guy, this guy’s persona, and this guy’s character.” 

Everybody knows him, but you know it definitely helps us out and it is nice to be able to learn from him.

If I have a question

He knows all about what I am doing every day. He has been doing it for 30 years, so. The other day I had a question, and I was stumped. Well I don’t know what to do in this situation, and so I just went upstairs, into his office, poked my head in and said this is the situation. What am I supposed to do here? What are my options? What would you do in this situation? What should I do?  And things like that. 

It is nice to be able to have that person that I can go to, that has been doing it for so long, that knows exactly what I am doing everyday, that I can go in and get help from. And he is so supportive. He has been supportive our whole lives. 

It is not really intimidating for me to go in there and ask him. You know sometimes if you are working at a big firm with a big shot attorney, you might be intimidated to walk in and ask him things. But his door is always open, he is always there. It is nice to be able to pop in and ask a question if I need to. 

He is definitely very well known and respected. Especially around the community, I mean a lot of our clients are returning clients and referrals.

Hopefully it is not really going to change much. 

My dad is going to retire. But it will be Reece and I doing the same thing and helping everybody out. And hopefully, you know, if all goes well, we don’t really see much of a difference.
