“Coming out of law school, I actually worked on the other side. I did defense work for some insurance companies. The way that I saw people dehumanized in the process really kind of drove me back to the plaintiff’s side and I said, ‘I want to be on the other side. I want to be fighting for injured people.’” ~ Dan Zick
