“Writing the check is important, but it’s not enough. If all you do is write the check then you are missing the most important thing you can do as a lawyer. Take a moment to remember sitting in law school when you imagined doing something remarkable as a lawyer.  I can tell you from personal experience that helping a family keep their house, allowing a senior citizen to live with dignity or finding a child a loving home are just a few of the remarkable experiences that you can achieve by giving of your time as well as your skills.  Let’s agree that we get tremendous satisfaction from serving our paying clients, but this work, the work we imagined as young law students is a special calling.   I believe in the deepest part of me that this work is calling you.”
