He also negotiates collective bargaining agreements and handles arbitrations on behalf of management.
We asked Paul: If you could give just one tip to younger attorneys, what would it be?
“Astound yourself. If you do that, you'll astound others too. Be open to the risk it takes to constantly strive for personal and professional growth. When you finish law school, you feel like you've accomplished something great-and you have. When you pass the bar exam, you feel like you can really practice law—and you can. But these are only the start of a fulfilling career. Anyone who plans to spend the next 40 years (80,000 hours!!) solving other peoples' problems, MUST continue to learn, grow, adapt, and astound. That kind of mindset requires intellectual curiosity and personal risk, because over time, it becomes easier and easier to fall back on doing things the way you've always done them. There is nothing amazing in rote repetition. But a willingness to challenge yourself will keep you interested and interesting. As Thomas A. Edison once said, 'If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves." So my advice is simple, go astound yourself.'"
