Catholic Charities – San Antonio
What was the most surprising thing you discovered at your job?
I sought out this position at Catholic Charities in part to gain a greater understanding of Probate, but what I did not expect was how much I would enjoy it! Not only is Probate a far more intellectually stimulating area than I anticipated, but you also have the opportunity to truly touch people’s lives. This is already a difficult time for your client, and as an attorney you can make it just a little less confusing.
What do you like the most about your job?
The attorneys, hands down. Each one had a slightly different approach which meant I was able to see multiple solutions to each matter presented. They were also incredibly accessible and cognizant of the fact that I was here to learn. There were always different learning opportunities presented, and excellent feedback on what was right and how to improve. This experience has helped me build a solid foundation in not just practice-specific skills, but basic “lawyering” skills as well and I could not be more grateful.
