What does someone with a master’s degree in philosophy and degree in physics do when searching for a new career? They enter law school of course. Having completed both degrees and dirtying his hands with a half dozen careers (philosophy teacher, condensed matter researcher, and restaurant manager) Philip decided law school was the answer.
Attending UNLV Boyd School of Law, Philip was sure to participate in as many areas of law as possible. This exposure led him to family law. It was an exciting area because regular people need personal assistance. Philip wasn’t as excited helping corporation X dissolve from corporate Y than helping regular people with legal problems. Philip is admitted to practice law before all District Courts in the State of Nevada.
One of the funnier stories explaining Philip’s personality comes from third grade. For extra work his teacher asked him to hand write words and their definitions from a dictionary. Philip’s excitement from learning new words was so contagious, soon the whole class was following suit. Imagine a class of third graders excited about the dictionary.
