Working in a smaller community and rural area can make the job of being a lawyer very appealing, according to one local attorney that practices law in Door and Kewaunee counties. Jim Downey of Blazkovec, Blazkovec & Downey explains why being an attorney in a smaller community is attractive to him.
Downey, whose father was also a lawyer, says he knew early on what career he was pursuing when in first grade he wrote on the chalkboard that he was going to be an attorney. Lawyers can realize a lucrative income in rural areas even though they may not be as specialized as they are in bigger cities, according to Downey.
