Introduce yourself and profession to our readers: My name is Shameka Clair Esq. and I am an Attorney and owner of The Clair Firm, LLC.
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest? My inspiration to become an Attorney came at a young age from learning about the law in school and noticing laws that needed to be changed for the benefit of all people. I also noticed a need for more minority lawyers as well as female lawyers.
What advice would you share with those interested in a similar pursuit? I would advise anyone else who is interested in not only becoming a Lawyer, but also having your own practice to decide now that it's exactly what you want and act on it. Start doing the research and taking the necessary steps to get there. Don't be indecisive about a field like the law that you must be passionate about.
Discuss a professional challenge and how you overcame it: A professional challenge that I've had would definitely be practicing law and having to manage a business at the same time. Both are very distinct and take different skills.
What is next for your brand/business in 2018? For my business in 2018 I have already expanded my office space and brought in more staff and cases. This year thus far has been busier than ever.
