Who are you and what do you do?

I am a young attorney trying to figure out what career path to take and how to get there. I am an associate attorney with Schwartz Semerdjian Ballard & Cauley LLP.  Helping individuals and businesses in various business and construction related disputes.  Most of my clients are contractors and subcontractors trying to get paid on the project they worked on or defending themselves from construction defect or delay claims.  We represent individuals and companies all over California.
