The Human LawyerS: Blood Drive

On May 31, 2019, from 8a to 2p, CoLaw is partnering with Hygge in a blood drive for the benefit of anyone with a blood disorder (folks like Kristi Martin) who could benefit from the donating of blood. Sign up because space is limited. And if you donate, you’ll be entered in a raffle to win prizes from Heist Brewing, Sycamore Brewing, FEAST Food Tours & Culinary Events, Sea Level, Orman’s Cheese, Assorted Table, and more. See you in two weeks.

The Human Lawyer: Landis Wade

Do you remember choosing to attend law school? Do you remember your earnest encouragers stating: “You can do anything with a law degree. What a great decision!” Do you remember graduating from law school, passing the bar, and folding into whatever line of work you thought you should do as a lawyer? Do you remember those existential thoughts as you reflected on the comments of your earnest encouragers: “What virtue! Those people lied. Lawyers can’t do “anything” with a law degree. All I’m set out for is exactly what I’m doing.”

Well, meet Landis Wade. Read his story. We all have inflection points in our lives. Learn what Landis chose at his inflection.

The Human Lawyer: Erika Mielke

Erika Mielke shows that to be special, you must be candid in assessing where your skills are (or would be) valued in the marketplace. Then, you must make room in your life to develop and showcase those skills, even when it means dominating a 6’5” human in a rowing competition. Erika’s story reminds us that just because a person looks like something, doesn’t mean the person is that something. Often, a person is so much more than her outward appearance.
