How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

Founder ,

Wind Tex Energy, LP

I do a little bit of everything. On the law side, now I have the luxury of only taking cases that interest me and sometimes I even take them pro bono. This involves researching the case, collecting and presenting evidence, going to court, doing a lot of paperwork, etc. On the wind side, I get to go out into the field and work with landowners to build wind turbines on their property.
