Career Role Model
Patrick Laurence... Attorney | Patrick Laurence... Litigator | Patrick Laurence... Representing Clients | Patrick Laurence... Catholic
I am an attorney who has been practicing law for about 20 years. I currently represent insurance companies in court-related proceedings. In the past, I have represented many different kinds of clients in litigation, including business owners, contractors, architects, and engineers. Most of my time is spent helping my clients resolve their disputes in court.
Many young people are unsure what they want to do for a career. Don't fret about that too much. I had no intention of becoming a lawyer but it eventually became clear to me that God intended that I become one. The financial means by which you will take care of yourself and your family are very much matters of God's providence. God knows that these things are important and gave us two very helpful directives when it comes to matters of money: "seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you" and "do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." Pray and try not to worry about the future.
