The late, great Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. inspired, motivated, and affected countless people’s lives, both when he was on this Earth and now through his writings.
The connection that Dr. King has and will have with people is unique for each individual.
Dr. King’s quote, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is ‘what are you doing for others?’” has motivated me in my life.
I realize that those injury victims in our home town would have little or no chance at justice without Dr. King. When I take on a case, my client’s problems become my problems.
This philosophy motivates me to work as hard as I possibly can, and spend significant amounts of money to ensure that not only my client and their family receive fair compensation, but moreover that the injury that befell my client will never happen to anyone ever again.
When I was 8 years old, my maternal grandmother Veronica Vulich suggested to me that I become a lawyer because there will always be people who will need me. Those words resonate in my mind all of the time.
On this day, we recognize the work that Dr. King did as a leader in the Civil Rights Movement and the ultimate price that he paid for furthering his beliefs. I humbly submit the best way to honor this man is to study his teachings and incorporate into our own personal life, the principles that will make you a better person.
