As a young man, Gary Jackson never thought he would one day become a lawyer. Born and raised in Denver, Jackson began his undergraduate studies at the University of Colorado thinking he would become an engineer.
"Keep an open mind and an open heart, align your efforts with whatever is 'true north' for you, work incredibly hard and do the right thing by the people you meet. If you do those things, your career and your life will end up finding a happy equilibrium for you and those you care about."
"Develop your social skills as well as your analytical and writing skills, because your ability to understand and relate well to people is a necessary tool for landing a job, being successful with colleagues and clients, attracting clients, and persuading judges and juries."
"Do not limit yourself to the traditional jobs in the law, i.e., law firms. There are other very interesting jobs that a law degree opens up for you–executive positions in the health industry, for example."
"The beauty of a law degree is that it can lead you to many different careers in the same profession. In less than 20 years I've worked as a law clerk, as a public prosecutor, in a small firm, in a big firm, and as a public official."
