"No one dreams of being a landlord/tenant attorney as a child.  But I have been working with residential property managers, assistant managers, leasing agents and property maintenance workers for my entire career.  I value those relationships.  And I enjoy my work just as much as any astronaut, rock star or baseball player enjoys theirs."
