There are certain skills every trial lawyer needs if they expect to succeed. The ability to analyze complex situations and develop winning strategies. Working well under pressure. Working as part of a team. These are skills Austin has spent years developing. While attending Stanford University, Austin played Cardinal football and eventually made the Pac-10 All-Academic Team. Without those skills, he never would have made it on the field.
After college, Austin served as director of a non-profit organization that helped cancer patients with the costs and other challenges associated with what can often be a devastating disease. Austin identified a group in need of help, so he helped them. It was work that made a difference.
The skills Austin developed in these positions are the same ones he brings to his practice at Fernelius Simon. He realizes there’s only one case that matters to the people walking through his door. He realizes they’re looking for someone who understands the law and how it will affect them. For someone who can make a plan and get the job done. As part of the Fernelius Simon team, that’s what Austin does.
In 2011, Austin graduated from Stanford University with a BA in Political Science & Sociology. In 2015, he received his law degree from Georgetown University Law Center.
