Tarabicos Grosso LLP
Social media you can’t live without: I don’t spend a lot of time on social media, but LinkedIn is my best resource professionally.
Your biggest break: An introduction to my partner, Larry, who has been a mentor and provided me an opportunity to practice real estate law.
Best career advice you ever got: Figure out the type of work you enjoy and don’t worry about financial compensation. If you enjoy your work, you will do it well and financial success will follow.
How you give back: I like to support causes important to my family, friends, and clients, whether it be something as simple as sponsoring a friend’s participation in a charity 5K to having our business sponsor a number of charity events throughout the year.
Your biggest challenge: While a law student, I always knew I wanted to practice real estate law, but when I graduated from law school, opportunities in real estate were scarce. I resisted the urge to seek employment in another practice area or to not practice law at all, and I started out working without pay to gain experience and find the right opportunity.
Networking group you use the most: I attend a number of different organizational events, but I most often attend either HBA (Home Builders Association) or CIRC (Commercial-Industrial Realty Council) events.
Work-life balance technique you recommend: I try to find a way to spend time with my family even on days when I am not physically present. I regularly face-time with my daughter if I am at the office late and take the opportunity to speak with my family during my daily commute.
