Five Questions with…April Price
Meet April, a Lane & Waterman patent attorney with great taste in Quad Cities Mexican food.
- What made you want to become a lawyer? My parents always knew I would become a lawyer because I argued about everything. That may be why I did, but I stay with it because I enjoy the feeling of helping ease someone’s burden and hearing their relief when I help them solve their problem.
- What do you do for fun? I’ve recently taken up running again, and I’m training for a half-marathon. My husband and I run together, which can be fun.
- What’s your favorite place to eat in the Quad Cities? Hands down, La Rancherita in Rock Island.
- Why have you chosen to focus on patent law? I’ll spare you the Venn Diagram, but there is a small amount of people who have an engineering background who are interested in practicing law. So my path was almost carved for me, having a Manufacturing Engineering degree and a law degree.
- Where did you grow up?” I grew up on a farm in Alpha, Illinois. I miss being in the country, and I want that for my kids. Some day I would love to move to the country and have a farm where we raise chickens and make our own soap.
