The Potts Law Firm Spotlight; Interview with Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Lawyer, Adam Funk
This week I sat down with The Potts Law Firm Partner, Adam Funk, to learn more about his journey becoming lawyer and his motivation behind advocating for victims of personal injury from pharmaceutical and medical devices.
Q. What made you decide to become an attorney?
I had the opportunity to work with a personal injury law firm after graduating college. Working with this firm really shaped my perception of personal injury law and the impact a single person can make in this industry. While many other occupations can make a change in the world, I always felt my contributions would be finite in comparison to the radical changes I could make in the legal realm. I knew by being a voice for the mistreated and holding big corporations accountable for their actions, I would not only be changing thousands of lives but also changing the corporate culture for future generations.
Q. How long have you been practicing?
Referring strictly to bar card credentials I’ve just completed my ninth year of practicing law. However, in my second year of law school I received a clerkship and was given many responsibilities as that of an attorney. By my third year of law school I received a temporary trial card from the State Bar of Texas which allowed me to practice law under the guidance of a veteran lawyer. Overall my experience exceeds nine years.
Q. What do you love the most about being an attorney?
The most rewarding aspect of my job is truly making a difference in peoples’ lives and in our society. One of my favorite things is receiving a thank-you card from a client whose life has been directly impacted by my work. It’s always humbling to feel genuine gratitude from someone you’re working for.
Another thing that keeps personal injury law interesting is the requirement to have a breadth of knowledge in fields completely unrelated to law. For example, if I’m representing a client in a medical malpractice case I’ll need to defend my argument against seasoned doctors and specialists who I’ll be going up against in court. I’ve recently acquired a case involving a fatality caused by an electrical explosion, so there will some electrical engineering research taking place in my foreseeable future.
