Well, it’s another busy day at work.

Looks like there have been a big crack down on drunk drivers in the past few weeks. We’ve seen a huge uptick in new clients. Of course this is good for business but everyone is working 12 hour days trying to get things ready for court dates, etc.

My boss, Steve, is a great guy though. He realizes that we’re under a lot of stress and has taken out the entire law office for lunch each and every day. Aside from being one of the best criminal lawyers in Chicago (and probably Illinois), he is a genuinely good-hearted guy.

The paralegals new favorite lunch spot is an awesome little pizza place in Lincoln Park called Pequads. The pizza is TO. DIE. FOR. No joke, haha.

Okay, that was my update from the office. Time to get back to work so I don’t end up here until 8:00pm like ever day last week. Wish me luck!

OK, after much thought and deliberation, I have finally taken the plunge and started my first blog. I figured that writing would be therapeutic and a good way to organize my thoughts every once and a while.

A lot of people at work, including my boss, have been blogging for a while and made it seem fun. So I figured, “why not!”

Hmmm, maybe I should tell you a bit about myself. Wait a second, who are you and why are you reading this? Do I know you? Haha, just kidding.

OK, here we go…

My name is Julia and Restoin-Roitfeld isn’t actually my real name. It is kind of an inside joke between me and a few friends. So a week ago (after a few glasses of wine, mind you), I bought this domain :).

I love to paint. It’s one of my favorite hobbies. Usually water color of landscapes.

I have two doggies that I love with all my heart – Rex and Chicken. I’m sure you’re asking yourself, “Who the hell names a dog ‘Chicken’?” *points it self* This crazy lady.

During the day, when I’m not fighting crime, I am a paralegal at Feldman Criminal Defense. It’s a law firm in Chicago. I live on the outskirts of Chicago and commute in each day. Yes, the traffic is a B-I-T-C-H butttt I actually enjoy it. My father was a criminal defense attorney and so was his father, so I guess you could say it’s in my blood. I first went to school for law but dropped out because of my surgery (I’ll need another post just to explain that).

Well, I think that’s it. Am I missing something? I guess leave a comment on this page if I am. Idk, I am still trying to figure out this whole “WordPress” thing.
