Five Questions with… Diane Reinsch

This week’s “Five Questions with…” features Diane Reinsch, whose current reads might surprise you.

  1. What was your favorite class in law school? Believe it or not, Criminal Procedure, which has nothing to do with what I do now.
  1. What is the biggest challenge facing lawyers today? Managing client expectations in light of technology and 24-hour access on smart phones and other devices. In addition, clients are exposed to information on the internet that might not be reliable, and I spend more time now responding to what a client has learned from the internet.
  1. What advice would you give to young people aspiring to be lawyers? Being a trial lawyer is not like Law & Order. It’s preparation, preparation, preparation.
  1. What book are you reading right now? The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway, which is what my book club of several remarkable women are reading.  I also love to read cookbooks and I am currently reading recipes from Cooking Texas Style I picked up on my recent trip to Austin.  I have learned that Texans love bacon drippings!
  1. What do you do before 7 am every day? I am generally getting ready for my day and listening to NPR.
