Learn more about The Potts Law Firm attorney, Adam Funk, in an interview with The Huffington Post as he explains the motivation behind his work as a personal injury lawyer.

What made you decide to become an attorney?

I strongly believe in the American justice system. There are only a handful of countries that allow the common man to seek justice against a large corporation for a wrong that was committed. Being a part of that justice system and representing those who were injured became my calling at a very early age. I felt it was my duty to help our society.

How long have you been practicing?

I have been practicing since 2008 – coming up on 10 years!

What do you love the most about being an attorney?

The “thank-you’s” from my clients. I work for my clients, so they don’t have to thank me, but when they do, it means I truly made a difference in their life.

Describe a memorable story of a client? What was so memorable about this client?

I once represented a woman who was taking a pharmaceutical drug for migraine headaches. The drug caused birth defects in her baby and the pharmaceutical corporation didn’t warn about those risks even though it knew about it. We were able to secure a significant amount of money for the mother and her baby that set that child up for the rest of his life. The mother still sends me a thank you card each year for the holidays and I still call her boy for his birthday each year. That case solidified my calling of being an attorney.
