“Determination is the wake-up call to the human will.”
Three years ago, I made the decision to tender my resignation from a promising and safe career at a respectable insurance defense firm. My vision was to launch Reif Law Group, P.C., a securities and business disputes trial law firm, with the freedom to choose to prosecute cases for plaintiffs and to defend cases for defendants.
Reif Law Group, P.C. (RLG) will celebrate its three-year anniversary on February 5, 2021, and I could not be prouder of the many amazing memories and triumphant victories we have achieved. I have been living the proudest time in my career while having improved the lives of many clients. I thoroughly enjoy the skilled professionals I work with daily at RLG. RLG’s cooperative practice of law has led to our enhanced reputation and our ability to selectively choose new clients, which is the greatest freedom of all, and one I have not previously experienced in twenty years of practice.
When the critics insist that I must choose a side in securities industry cases, I jokingly refer to myself as a trial mercenary, the warrior you want to hire to win the trial.
I will spend some time over the next few weeks reflecting on my journey towards professional and financial independence and taking control of my own destiny by launching RLG. Stay tuned for more reflections. I hope to be able to succinctly capture my dreams by February 5, 2021.
