About This Episode

In this episode, Jonathan Rosenfeld explains that “the people who are successful, who have long-term success, put in so much work that you would never believe it.” Seeing how people are impacted by an accident, learning how to talk to clients was the most important skill that Jonathan Rosenfeld learned while working.

Jonathan's Background

After his parents suggested he attend law school, Jonathan Rosenfeld thought “Why not?” But although law school was not fun for him, Jonathan Rosenfeld worked in a few personal injury firms and found that he thrived in this area.

Why Attend Law School?

After interning with a personal injury law firm, Jonathan Rosenfeld realized that this practice area was great for him. Jonathan continued to work with various personal injury law firms to gain more experience with mass tort cases, truck or car accidents, dog bites, and other class action suits.

The true magic of personal injury law is that any person, of any age or occupation, can be involved in a personal injury accident.

Jonathan Rosenfeld began recording YouTube videos and podcasts to better explain personal injury law. With greater knowledge, clients will understand the flow of personal injury actions and the patience needed for class action suits. An added benefit to creating content about legal issues is that Jonathan is also advertising for his law firm.

In this episode, Jonathan Rosenfeld encourages lawyers to work hard and not rest on their school accolades.

What Can You Do With a Law Degree?

Jonathan insists that becoming successful requires hard work after law school. Regardless of whether you enjoyed law school or found it easy, you must create the career that you want when you are away from the classroom.

Jonathan continues, “people who are successful, who have long-term success, put in so much work that you would never believe it.” We discuss how much time and effort is needed to become an overnight success because success is not easy to obtain.
