Q&A with Mitchell S. Roth
Q: Why did you become a lawyer?
A: I received my bachelor's degree in accounting from the University of Illinois and went on to become a CPA. To be honest, a part of me didn't want to leave the academic world at that time and I had always been intrigued by business law. So law school seemed like a natural course. My love for and comfort with the numbers side of things (objective v. subjective) led me to the challenge of law school where skills in writing and analysis are paramount. A business degree along with a law degree (combined with my years of working in the middle market in Chicago) have provided a unique blend of experience that has benefitted me and the clients I'm fortunate to work with every day.
