[00:00:05.240] My name is Cliff Nelson, and I have been practicing law for over 30 years. [00:00:10.520] I've been associated with the Law Office of Michael H. Joseph [00:00:13.880] for ten years. [00:00:15.240] I grew up in a family where my dad was a lawyer [00:00:17.880] and I think there was like an expectation for me [00:00:21.400] to follow in his footsteps. [00:00:24.640] Although I went to law school, I didn't really follow in his footsteps. [00:00:28.720] He was a big firm type lawyer that did transactional work, [00:00:32.600] and I never really had an interest in doing that. [00:00:36.120] While I was in law school, I clerked as a student law clerk [00:00:39.880] for a federal judge, and I got more interested in litigation and trial work. [00:00:45.520] When I got out of law school, that was the path that I took. [00:00:49.480] I'm very fortunate that I've been able to pursue [00:00:56.200] this type of law representing people over the course of my career. [00:01:01.200] I've really enjoyed being a lawyer. [00:01:04.920] I enjoy being with people, I enjoy helping people. [00:01:11.320] There's no greater privilege in life [00:01:14.040] than helping someone in their time of need. [00:01:17.520] The type of people that we represent are people that are in need. [00:01:22.120] They're oftentimes not people with a lot of money, [00:01:25.080] they're oftentimes people that if they [00:01:27.520] didn't have a lawyer, they wouldn't be able to get any remedy whatsoever. [00:01:33.880] So it's really nice and really satisfying [00:01:37.960] to be able to be of that service to someone. [00:01:41.680] When I take a case, [00:01:42.880] clients can expect that I will always be getting back to them, [00:01:47.640] always be keeping them up to date on what's going on, [00:01:51.920] letting them know the good parts of the case [00:01:55.040] and the bad parts of the case, [00:01:57.560] and using my experience to advise them of the best path forward.
