This week’s “Five Questions with…” features Diane Reinsch, whose current reads might surprise you.
- What was your favorite class in law school? Believe it or not, Criminal Procedure, which has nothing to do with what I do now.
- What is the biggest challenge facing lawyers today? Managing client expectations in light of technology and 24-hour access on smart phones and other devices. In addition, clients are exposed to information on the internet that might not be reliable, and I spend more time now responding to what a client has learned from the internet.
- What advice would you give to young people aspiring to be lawyers? Being a trial lawyer is not like Law & Order. It’s preparation, preparation, preparation.
- What book are you reading right now? The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway, which is what my book club of several remarkable women are reading. I also love to read cookbooks and I am currently reading recipes from Cooking Texas Style I picked up on my recent trip to Austin. I have learned that Texans love bacon drippings!
- What do you do before 7 am every day? I am generally getting ready for my day and listening to NPR.
