Meet Austin Bar Member, Eric Hansum.
How long have you been a member of the Austin Bar and what is your favorite thing about the organization?
I have been a member since 2004. I love the employment law CLE lunches on-site. Over the years, those meetings have been a great avenue for meeting and keeping in touch with other colleagues in the same field.
What do you like most about being in the legal field?
You have the opportunity to change lives and impact future decisions for your clients. I became a solo practitioner a while back with a focus on employment and healthcare law. Since that time, I have really enjoyed learning the business side of the practice of law. And by being a solo, I have been able to handle cases in different areas that interest me that I may not have been able to as part of a large firm.
If you weren’t a lawyer what would you be?
Football coach. I love college football.
