Notes
  • You were wise to include details of the wide variety of specialities and settings for lawyer work. The list of personal qualities sounds just like you, so you should make a good lawyer. Your narration also reinforces the sense of honesty, directness, and natural ability to adapt. The info and sound are solid. The only thing that isn't quite as strong as the rest are the rather stodgy-looking folks and settings. There must be hipper folks working as lawyers--or maybe not until you get there. --DForeman
