Cole D Sorenson started practicing law, he was blessed with the opportunity to work with his father for several years. It was a great experience because my Dad was not out to make money off of my labor, but instead just wanted to teach me to be the best lawyer I could be.
I am the first to admit that I have made mistakes along the way. I developed a serious drug issue in the late 90’s that eventually lead me to be suspended by the State Bar of Arizona in September of 2000.
All of these issues are a matter of public record. Although I am embarrassed about the mistakes that I have made in the past, I also know that those mistakes and my ability to learn from those mistakes have made me who I am today: as a person, a father and a lawyer.
For several years following my suspension I did many jobs that were unrelated to the practice of law. I drove an 18 wheeler for approximately one year, I did some plumbing, I did some construction, I got involved with a friend of mine and was involved in the promotion and production of special events (SuperBowl, Baseball, Arena Football)…etc.
All these jobs helped me gain life experience which is critical in learning to deal with people and to help them with their problems. After approximately five years of being away from the practice of law I came to the realization that this was the profession that was best suited for me.
This does not mean that I do not have a great staff assisting me. I do! But my philosophy is that you hired me not my paralegal to handle your case.
