FC: Criminal Defense Attorney Kala Taylor
1: Candy Whitehead is a Criminal Defense Attorney in Texas. She is a family friend, from when I lived in Texas.
2: It is important for Candy to be able to communicate well, along with knowing how to deal with people. She also should be able to think clearly and under pressure.
3: The typical work day consists of meeting with clients and gathering information to win the case.
4: Candy had to go through a total of 7 years of college. 4 to get her degree, and three more at a law school. She also had to pass state and government issued tests in order to get her license to practice law.
5: Lawyers wear suites and professional style clothing. There is not an enforced dress code though.
6: In high school Candy took a public speaking class. She feels that class as well as others helped to prepare her to become a Lawyer. The worst part of her job to her is losing cases.
7: She spends a lot of time in the office and in the courtroom.
8: Her job pays her a salary of almost 170,000 a year. Her job also offers her insurance. More and more people become a lawyer everyday. It is difficult to start off, but very much worth it.
10: Originally Candy did not want to go into the field of law. Her first career choice was Nursing, but after taking a few classes such as Anatomy, she quickly changed her mind.
