Why You Practice Law and How to Make It Matter


Recently I wrote: For Lawyers: Questions to Help You Figure Out Your Purpose. As I was writing I was thinking about Nashville construction lawyer Matthew DeVries. I got to know Matt first on Twitter. Last September Matt traveled to Dallas to give a presentation and joined me for dinner. He had read my book Prepare to Win on the flight to Dallas. So, we spent some time at dinner talking about the journey each of us had taken to find our purpose.

Matt has a construction law blog, but he also has a blog on family life. Shortly after our dinner, Matt sent me a post he did How to Draft a Family Plan and Prepare for Rain! Matt quotes from my book on how I found my passion and purpose as a lawyer.
