Geoffrey Van Olden
Ketterman Rowland & Westlund – San Antonio, TX
What did you like most about your job?
I enjoy the feeling of making someone whole again after they’ve suffered an injury. The work we do at the firm is largely about holding people accountable for their actions, so the sense of justice at play is what makes the job worth doing. It’s easy to get passionate about our cases and doing good work for our clients.
What was the most surprising thing you learned at this job?
I have been surprised at how much Torts with Professor Liu prepared me for the work I have been doing at the firm. The basics learned in that class truly prepared me for my clerkship. Being able to rely on that knowledge has been awesome, and it has proved to be a great foundation for learning more about personal injury work.
