Aulsbrook Law Firm - August 2018



FROM LAWNS TO LAW ADedication toHelping Those inNeed I ’ve hired my fair share of attorneys over the years. This was before I became an attorney myself. The truth is, there are a lot of issues people face every single day that they can’t tackle on their own. I’ve been there. I’ve been in tough situations and didn’t know what to do next. That’s one of the reasons I went to law school and focused hard on earning my legal license. I just wanted to help people out of tough situations. I also wanted to have my own law firm where I could give the most to every client. This was an idea that goes back to my childhood. I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart and I started my first business at age 15. Since then, I’ve established a number of businesses. I’d say I love being a business owner almost as much as I love helping people. When you’re in trouble with the law, have been in an accident, need help with a business, or have an immigration issue, there’s always going to be

a lawyer who’s willing to help. And I don’t just mean lawyers who will take any case that crosses their desk — I’m talking about lawyers who are willing to help and genuinely care about every client they see. That’s the type of attorney I’ve pushed myself to become.

I grew up on a farm and had access to all kinds of equipment. I knew what I could do with lawn mowers, weed eaters, and a trailer. As a teenager, I brought everything together and started my own lawn service company. This was about the time when minimum wage was around $4 an hour. I could easily mow one yard in an hour (or less) and charge $25. Before I knew it, I’d hired help. From there, the business grew. The great thing was, I was working for myself. Just as I had a passion for entrepreneurship, I had a passion for being my own boss, working for myself and my clients. It’s what made sense to me. I’ve learned a lot since I was out mowing lawns years ago. Today, I’m glad I’m in a place where I can help people fight for the rights they deserve. When you need someone to fight for you or a loved one — someone to go to bat for you when you aren’t sure what to do next — I’ll be here. There’s nothing more important than knowing you’ve got someone by your side.”

At the same time, I’ve owned an insurance agency since 2009. Working in insurance gives you a unique perspective. I’ve seen how insurance companies treat people who have been in an accident and filed a claim. There are folks who get a lot of pushback from the insurance companies, particularly when it’s not their own insurance company that they’re dealing with. I wanted to help people overcome this kind of challenge, along with some of the legal challenges that I myself have faced in the past. There’s nothing more important than knowing you’ve got someone by your side.
