What I Learned from Paula Marie Young
Before law school, I was verbose. Now, I am not. I always delete unnecessary words. Professor Young taught me to be succinct in Legal Process. It made me a better writer. I thank her for that gift.
What’s more, she taught me Alternative Dispute Resolution in my second year. I use the lessons I learned under her tutelage every day in my practice.
Getting to Yes is a foundational book that I would recommend to anyone in any walk of life. I am posting her blog site here for anyone interested in her writings. She is tech savvy and writes oodles of information on various and sundry legal topics. (Sorry Prof. Young I had to say various and sundry) You can read her here. http://the-red-velvet-lawyer.blogspot.com

Professor Young’s Influence on me as a Charleston, SC Accident Injury Attorney
I use the Alternative Dispute Resolution that I learned in college to settle injury claims. I have years of experience and I know how insurance companies work.
In addition to that, I understand the pain and suffering of an injury. I also understand the frustration and feelings of powerlessness that my clients experience when dealing with injuries, life changes, and stubborn insurance companies.
I want to reach out to injury victims who need a voice. If you or someone close to you, family or friend, has been injured because of someone else’s thoughtlessness, call The Hartman Law Firm, LLC.
