http://www.perecman.com When I first got out of law school I started to do tax work, which was behind the desk stuff. And that job did not work out. It didn't work out because I wasn't suited for it. I had the requirements to become a lawyer and then I ended up going to a personal injury firm and working for somebody. The last of many steps to becoming a lawyer, And I had a great mentor, one of the great Deans of the Trial Bar as a matter of fact. And as soon as I got in there and started going to court every day and negotiating, and I was told that I could try a case, I was like, excited. That really thrilled me because in college I had acted and I sort of wanted to do that. That would have been something I would have loved to do with my life. But probably the family pressure to become a professional and fulfill requirements to become a lawyer. I wasn't going to become an actor. I would have disappointed too many people. So I took steps to becoming a lawyer.
