A lot of reading. It was expensive. I learned a lot of practical knowledge there. What I didn't like about it was some of my classmates, a lot of people there acted like they were better than everybody.

Law school was the best thing that ever happened to me after being a private and public investigator from 1982 till 1986 working in Washington DC as an investigator criminal justice act then doing Ricco investigations in Arizona and then going private sector. I was accepted to law school in 1985. I knew I wanted to grow, law school was the platform and forum that allowed me to hone my investigative skills and mature into a trial attorney.
