Rena Piper Law School Graduation PhotoWe are thrilled to spotlight an exceptional member of our team, Rena Piper, who recently celebrated a significant milestone by graduating from law school. From client to law clerk, Rena’s journey into the legal profession is a testament to her determination and commitment to her ambitions and those in need. After throwing her cap in the air, Rena shared a few life lessons she learned along the way!

Rena’s Incredible Journey

Rena’s journey is truly remarkable. A U.S. Army Veteran, she pursued her passion for law later in life while also embracing the role of a devoted mother. Along the way, she encountered a myriad of challenges, often different from those commonly faced by “traditional” law students.

One of the most profound lessons Rena learned during her time in law school was the importance of granting herself grace. It’s no surprise that most people in the legal field are type A personalities, which also means wrestling with high expectations. Rena realized that perfect is impossible, and it was okay to accept a helping hand, especially as someone already juggling a job and family at home!

Another significant hurdle was overcoming the pervasive imposter syndrome many law students experience. This was particularly poignant for Rena, who had to overcome those pesky doubts that plague even the most capable people in demanding environments.

Rena’s Story of Her Decision to Attend Law School

Rena’s decision to attend law school represented a pivotal leap of faith. After more than 15 years in higher education and a stable job, the switch to pursuing a legal career meant stepping into the unknown — a decision fueled by a deep-seated calling to advocate for justice. This calling became unmistakably clear during her experience as one of our firm’s early daycare case clients.

Rena’s story is a powerful reminder that it’s never too late to pursue your calling. Her journey challenges the traditional trajectory of the legal profession and highlights the diverse backgrounds and life experiences that enrich the practice of law.

As Rena returns to The Button Law Firm after her bar exam, she brings her legal education and a rich tapestry of life experiences that highlight her commitment to justice. Rena’s story is not just her own but a symbol of possibility for anyone considering a drastic career change or wrestling with self-doubt in pursuing their dreams. It demonstrates unequivocally that with passion, faith, and the right support, transformative changes are within reach!
