As I’ve been making my way through my pre-law studies at UCLA, I’ve mostly focused on studying personal injury and criminal law. I know these are the main practice areas I’ll cover once I become a lawyer, so I want to become an expert.
However, the best lawyers can handle cases outside of their expertise, so I think it makes sense for me to research and learn about other areas of law. Not to mention, things may change during my three years of law school. Maybe I’ll decide to go in a different direction. I want to have all my bases covered, so lately I’ve been learning about investment law.
Learning About Investment Law
Who would’ve known that even rich professionals need help from lawyers? I guess that’s pretty obvious, but I just never thought about it. FINRA Expungement lawyers have in-depth knowledge of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. These lawyers help stockbrokers and financial advisors remove customer disputes from FINRA’s database called BrokerCheck. Wolper Law Firm is a national law firm that specializes in this type of law.
When I first started reading about investment law, I was confused to say the least. But then, I became fascinated by it all. Not only do these lawyers help financial industry professionals handle customer disputes, but they also help investors recover investment losses.
Although these clients may not be in legal trouble, their finances are of high importance. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are likely on the line and sometimes, people’s jobs and the future of their families are on the line, too. Becoming an investment lawyer means outsmarting some of the smartest individuals in the country. In some cases, it means working with banks and brokerages that are depending on you for guidance.
Leaving My Options Open for the Future
While I’m still set on pursuing personal injury and criminal law for now, learning about this practice area has definitely opened my eyes. Not only is investment law challenging, but it provides financial opportunity unlike many other areas of law. When the clients you work with make more money, you make more money as well.
I know money isn’t a good reason to switch my primary niche, which is why I’m going to stick with my current path. But thankfully, law degrees aren’t specialized. I can change my path at any time in my career, which is exciting. I’ll keep my options open and see where life takes me.
