What do you like about this subject?

Laws by nature are general. But in litigation, the law gives personal attention to individuals who are struggling with the law, often in cases where the law is unclear. As a Minnesota litigation attorney, I enjoy helping people get justice within "the system."

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Also, I enjoy the constant evolution of the law. You will read on my Minnesota attorney blog that I enjoy tracking case law, deciphering it, and helping people apply it to their businesses or lives.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Most cases that go to trial are complex. Simple cases normally settle. This includes areas of the law like business. Criminal defense may be one exception, because no matter how clear the case, sometimes the parties will fight the issue because the stakes are so high.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

First, Personal injury attorneys are not "ambulance chasers." Instead, they ensure that victims are compensated by insurance companies under the insurance policy. Second, Copyright attoreys will get more busy as infringement spreads on the web.
