I’m an attorney, so I still work as an attorney. Now, when I did the return to work I did use, I reached back out to Shepherd because that was who I knew. And they were able to connect me with someone who helped me with the return to work process. And I’m sure in most states, they give you resources to help with return to work, I was connected with Georgia’s resources and that helped the process. They came into my office, helped me figure out what kind of equipment I would need to be able to work effectively. So, I’m pretty close to doing the full level of duties that I had before. I’m not all the way back in the courtroom, but I’m slowly inching my way back into the courtroom.
