When Philosophies Align

Meet Will Privette

When I was growing up, my dad gave me a sage piece of advice. He told me that no matter what, I should pursue a profession that allowed me to be my own boss. He wanted me to work toward a career where I set the terms and where I was in charge of my own destiny. From Dad’s perspective, that career could have been any number of things, from a plumber to a lawyer — you name it. As I went through school, I considered my options while thinking back to what my dad had told me. I decided on a career in law. The more I learned, the more I fell in love with law. I could see the path before me and it followed the advice my dad had given me. I would be in charge of my own destiny, and I would be able to help people along the way. Today, when I reflect, I know I made the right choice. Working with the team at Herrman & Herrman in particular has given me a place where I can help people every single day. After all, that’s exactly how the firm defines itself: always putting you first. On top of that, every day is different and every case is unique. As a law professional, these are aspects of the field that really drew me in. If anything, it’s never monotonous. At times, it feels like we’re the Robin Hood of law firms. People come to us for help and we swing into action. In reality, it may not be quite that exciting, but we really do get to help people. We’re helping the little guy against big insurance companies. For a lot of people, an injury can lead to months or more of aggravation, especially when it comes to dealing with insurance companies.

It’s up to us to take on that aggravation and be the ones fighting the insurance giants so our clients don’t have to. The opportunity to represent a client against an insurance company is an incredible experience. It’s a challenge that I love to take on. You have to think quickly and on your feet. It requires a lot of preparation and strategy. Even with all that preparation, though, I may encounter a curveball and alter my strategy right on the spot. That’s another reason I pursued a law career: I’m always being kept on my toes. There’s never a dull moment, and that’s the way I love it, in and out of the courtroom. You could even say the idea of “never a dull moment” translates over into my personal life, as well. I’m a musician and play in a Dallas-area band. It’s a band that generally keeps things fairly low-key. We play weddings, parties, gatherings, that sort of thing. It’s a lot of fun and it keeps me busy when I’m out of the office. Of course, I always look forward to coming back into the office to work with clients. The number one goal at Herrman & Herrman is customer satisfaction. Every member of our team is here to impact each client in a positive way. There are a lot of law firms that are all about growth and success. Their priorities are raising legal fees and moving on to the next case. They look past the needs of their clients. Herrman & Herrman is the opposite of that, and that’s why I love working with the firm and being a part of the team. Their philosophy is my own philosophy.
