Compton Law May 2018

Hey, everyone! It’s good to be back. I’ve been pretty busy over the past couple of years, working on all kinds of initiatives. I wanted to come back to our newsletter eventually, and it just happens to return at one of the better times of year. Spring is a time of renewal and rejuvenation — what better time to breathe life back into something? I’m eager to get the newsletter started again for this month and future ones. I thought I’d start May off by writing about someone really special to me. Mother’s Day is this month, and I think a lot about her around this time of year. My mom, Lynda, was an incredible human being. She always strove to be the best that she could be, and this had a big impact on me. She had two characteristics that I really looked up to while I was growing up, and they still affect me to this day. She always fought for those who were less fortunate in life. Fighting vigorously to speak out and standing up for people who couldn’t, my mom always supported those who needed GETTING BACK INTO IT IN MAY

any kind of help. She was involved in special education throughout most of her years; it was her purpose in life. The other characteristic of hers that I admire was how she valued the importance of a good work ethic. She was assiduous in all the work she was given, pulling the best out of herself in order to do as much as possible for her job and other people. When I was in high school, I saw my mom portray both of these qualities. She held a position as the school’s counselor, so I was able to see her and how she worked with the students and other staff members quite a lot. I can remember how hard she applied herself at her job. As a school employee, her contract said she was only required to work regular business days and hours, and it wasn’t the highest paying job out there either. But, almost every day, she would work into the evenings after everyone else left for the day. Whether it was talking to parents or preparing a report for the school, she’d be

there, handling it. She did an exceptional amount of work given what was required of her and what she was getting paid to do. I like to say I strive to do the same in my own job. Though I’ll never be as good as she was, I definitely aspire to be someone like her. I want to be able to speak out for my clients whose voices aren’t heard because they are battling huge insurance companies and for those who have been wrongly accused of crimes. The Compton Law Firm was built to help individuals receive the legal advice and representation they deserve during the most difficult times in their lives. To help our clients, we offer our best to get them through. In the practice of law, if I can have half of the same conscientious work ethic as my mother did throughout her career, I’ll be one very successful lawyer.

This May, I encourage you all to think about the ways in which a special person has impacted your life.
