Day in the life of
Lawyer – Sarah J. Sepasi, Esq.
Being a lawyer is incredibly dynamic. There is endless variety and no day of practice is the same. Your brain is hard-wired to evaluate risk and advise accordingly. You often see the blind spots of others and have developed enough resilience to take on unfamiliar things that are thrown your way. The legal profession can be quite stimulating once a lawyer gains clarity on the practice areas and types of clients they enjoy working with. It helps to have a “why” even if that purpose is constantly evolving. It takes true dedication and commitment to build a thriving and sustainable law practice.
My favorite part of practicing law is helping clients figure out the big legal picture for their respective businesses. I enjoy strategizing and designing policies and solutions that reduce legal risk while at the same time further my clients’ business objectives.
My least favorite part of practicing law is the litigation aspect of it. After nearly 10 years of dealing with other lawyers, it was disheartening when a nasty phone call or email could ruin my day. That’s why my practice is now focused on advising business owners on how to build and secure their businesses by implementing preemptive policies and transactional solutions. I’ll only file a lawsuit as a last resort but generally find success using alternate means.
