Attorney Peter Tragos Speaks to High Point YMCA About Becoming A Lawyer
Peter Tragos spoke to teens today from the High Point YMCA regarding his career as an attorney within the Clearwater, Florida area. He believes in the importance of giving back to his community through mentoring. As a father and an attorney, Peter works diligently for both his clients and his family, but thoughts of the broader Clearwater community are never too far from his mind.
His lecture today focused on giving local teens the tools to pursue a successful and fulfilling life as an attorney. Drawing on his experience, he recounted the work and grind of an attorney’s daily life – days filled with case research, meetings with clients, and litigating cases in the courtroom.
Peter is well versed in the traits and characteristics that are vital to becoming a successful attorney. He knows that, while it takes a great deal of perseverance to be a lawyer, the teens at High Point YMCA have what it takes. The goal for today’s lecture was to inspire these teens to apply themselves and work hard towards their goals, whatever those may be.
An important aspect of the life of an attorney is learning how to maintain a balance between work and home life. Peter described the difficulties of keeping a stable personal life, along with the intensity of a high-profile career and emphasized the importance of balancing work and school priorities with our personal lives.
