Florida-based False Claims Act (qui tam) attorney Audrey Schechter knew early in her life that she was going to be a lawyer.
Around age 12, Schechter recognized that her greatest strengths were in the humanities, and she says that she saw a career in law as her opportunity to “make an impact and to help create a just world.”
Aside from the general pursuit of justice, Schechter says that she’s always been attracted to legal quandaries as exercises in intellect. “I like exercising my brain,” she explains. “I like thinking through fact patterns, coming up with good approaches to cases, and I like that not everybody can do that.”read more
In his tenure at Bos & Glazier, attorney Brad Glazier has been recognized as both a “Michigan Super Lawyer” since 2006, and as one of the “Best Lawyers in America” in the specialty category of labor and employment law since 2007. He was also selected to become a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates and, in 2017, he was inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers.

Attorney Tim Del Castillo of Castle Law California Employment Counsel says that being an attorney is the “greatest job in the world because I get to think, read, and write for a living, which is pretty cool for somebody who likes to do those things.”

Del Castillo says that using the English translation of his name makes the firm easier to scale, sell, and add partners to down the line.read more

Graham and LaGroue are both Louisiana natives, where they live and practice to this day.
According to Graham, working so close to home adds a personal level to the duo’s daily workload. “It’s helping our neighbors. It’s helping people that we see everyday get through some of the worst times in their lives. And if we can help them get through it quickly and efficiently, then they can heal and hopefully find better relationships or be better parents to their kids rather than dwell on the negative.”read more
Before starting his own practice, Peterson says he found himself representing “big companies, doctors, and insurance companies” while working on the defense side of employment, medical malpractice, and personal injury cases.
But, he says, “There’s a part of me that has always been, and hopefully will always be, very empathetic to people who are put in really bad situations often through no fault of their own.” It was that aspect of his personality that caused him to gravitate toward a career on the plaintiffs’ side of those same cases.read more
