Show notes

Ruth Jeremiah was originally interested in public interest law.  However, her career trajectory did not progress as she planned and Ruth found herself working in document review for six years.  Although Ruth did not enjoy every aspect of document review (and later e-discovery work), these experiences taught Ruth patience.  

Growing up, Ruth enjoyed watching “Law & Order” and at the age of eleven, Ruth knew that she wanted to be a lawyer.  Although Ruth was interested in advocacy, legal aid, and immigration matters, Ruth had to fight to find a career that she would enjoy in Dallas.  

Currently, Ruth is a legal analyst with Thomson Reuters.  In this role, Ruth reviews sales and use tax laws, manages data for twelve of the 50 states, and works with accountants and other lawyers.  Law school taught Ruth to think analytically, although Ruth notes that she could have learned advocacy without attending law school.

Ruth Jeremiah is a licensed attorney in the state of Texas.  You may connect with Ruth on LinkedIn.
