Bringing a Fresh Perspective to The Gibson Law Group

I t’s amazing, in our line of work, all the little things you get to do for regular people just trying to get by. Recently, I had an electrician come to me for help. He’d been slapped with a judgment against him to the tune of $30,000 and had no idea what to do. Turns out, he wasn’t the one who had actually owed the money — to oversimplify a little here, his previous attorney was suing him after he’d given him a batch of bad legal advice. Whatever the case, it was clear that this guy should definitely not have been talking to my client the way he was. So, long story short, I was able to get in touch with that previous neglectful attorney and have some choice words with him. After all that good stuff, we were able to get that $30K trimmed down to something much more manageable, and the electrician was free to breathe a sigh of relief. Now he’s working with me to get the appropriate business mechanics in place and sending me any releases before he ever signs them. He’s a lot better off and will be for a long time to come. It was fulfilling to be able to help this hardworking guy out of a bind he’d found himself in due to nothing more than a couple of small mistakes he had made. Luckily, I get to do this kind of thing all the time — and even more often now, since I signed on as Of Counsel for The Gibson Law Group in June. It’s this opportunity to support regular folks through trying times that keeps me coming into the office each day. Honestly though, when I was growing up, I was never destined to be an attorney. If you ask my family, I was supposed to be a doctor.

watching soap operas, though a few lessons helped too. My father was a physician and my brother was a physician, so naturally, I was going to be a physician too. But after a long, labyrinthine path through my undergrad following my relatives around — I started off in community college, bumped up to UCLA, headed up to Wayne State University in Detroit, transferred to University of Waterloo up in Canada, and finished up at UT Dallas — I wasn’t quite ready to put in 10 more years of school before starting a family. So, while all of my friends were studying for the MCAT, DCAT, or some other type of CAT, I began studying for the LSAT. Today, I couldn’t be happier that I made that fateful decision. I get to help people protect their livelihood and continue to put bread on the table for their families every day. I take the faith and trust my clients put in me very seriously and do absolutely everything within my power to make their lives easier, chasing away the sleepless, stressed- out nights they’ve been experiencing. Outside of the office, most of my time lately has been devoted to my toddler son and preparing for our next little one, who’s due this November. My life has changed a lot in the last few years, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Between being there for my family and serving my clients the best way I can, I can’t imagine a more gratifying, meaningful day-to-day.
