Before becoming a lawyer, Lena went through a life-changing experience right before her last year of college at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. While driving home from work, a drunk driver smashed into Lena’s car in an almost head on collision. Lena’s car was totaled, she suffered neck and back injuries and couldn’t work. With the assistance of a lawyer, Lena was able to recover and move on with her life. Talking about her experience, Lena says:

“There is no way I would have known what to do during that stressful time without the help of a lawyer. I know that I was lucky, but I can name too many people who did not fully recover after therapy. Worse, there are people who lose a loved one at the fault of someone else. There is someone everyday who needs legal help.”
