Recently, I met with one of my classmates from Leadership Toledo in my quest to get to know each member better. Pete Lavalette is an attorney with Robson Curphey & O'Connell or RCO as they're know around here.
I had always thought that once an attorney decided to specialize in a specific area, that pretty much was the path their career would take. Maybe it is so for some. Pete shared that because of both market changes and changes in our laws, his focus is having to adjust, too.
I'm glad I have a better understanding of the challenges that attorneys may be facing. It helps me to be more empathetic and it also helps me to understand better how I can help.
Thanks, Pete, for taking the time to help educate me!
