What’s your practice area?

General practice. Can’t really do just one area where I moved to. Very rural but there was a need for attorneys. Only four in the area -two were old and halfway retired and other two haven’t practiced law long enough. My legal assistant’s late husband was an attorney and then a Judge for years before passing so she knows her way around.
