How My Army Experience Made Me a Better Attorney

Charlottesville, Virginia Lawyer Greg Webb

Video Transcript:

I attended the University of Virginia on a four-year Army ROTC Scholarship.

Right after graduation, I was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the United States Army, and spent four years on active duty with the 10th Mountain Division, a light infantry unit, and really enjoyed my time there. 

I'd kinda known since I was a kid that I wanted to be an attorney. And as I was in the army, going through training there, and I did a lot of things. I was a Platoon Leader and did a lot with soldiers, did a lot kinda representing them in a leadership capacity, and I thought, You know, I think I might wanna pursue law school. Representing my clients is a little bit like when I had soldiers taking care of my soldiers, I think I take care of my clients in a similar fashion. Of course, the military taught me a lot about discipline, structure, planning, and then I think all of those translate really well into being a litigator, of being a trial attorney, so trying to help my clients represent them like I would want a family member represented, or like I would want myself represented, and that's the same way I approach taking care of my soldiers.
