I am Jane Abaravich. I am an associate attorney and I started at Agruss Law Firm in November of 2019. The thing I like most about personal injury cases is that no two cases are ever the same. Each case presents a new set of obstacles and problems, so it almost forces me to continue to sharpen my critical thinking skills, which I think is important as an attorney.
The thing I like most about consumer rights is that it gives individuals a voice to exercise their rights against big companies. A lot of individuals don't understand how many rights they do have when it comes to credit or harassment, so our clients are always very pleasantly surprised with the amount of help that we can provide for them.
I like being a plaintiff's attorney mostly because at the end of the day, I feel good about the work that I'm doing. I think it's important to understand who your clients are as an individual, as a person. I think if you can understand who your clients are, you can be a better advocate for them.
My favorite animal would definitely be a dog. If I had to pick just one, I'd go with Australian Shepherd. They're very energetic and intelligent and also very adorable. The app that I use the most would be Apple music. I'm constantly listening to music, especially while I'm working.
My favorite food would be steak and potatoes. My perfect vacation would be anywhere on a beach with warm weather. Weekends are for getting together with friends and family and socializing, finding new bars and restaurants in the city and just exploring Chicago overall.
I can't imagine doing anything other than being a lawyer and since I can remember, I've always wanted to be a lawyer, so I can't imagine any other job besides this one. My favorite book is Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I think I read that entire book in three days. My favorite movie is the 2013 version of The Great Gatsby.
At the risk of sounding extremely cheesy, I genuinely like coming to work each day. Agruss Law Firm has a very cohesive and welcoming environment. We do a lot of intense work without the intense stress that comes with it. So, it's a very enjoyable place to work.
