The Triangle Business Journal has named Nexsen Pruet attorney Jason Pfister as a member of this year’s class of “40 Under 40.”
This awards program recognizes recognize outstanding professionals under the age of 40 for their contributions to their organizations and to the community.
Excerpts from Pfister's Profile include:
What is the greatest obstacle you have overcome in your career?
A month before I was supposed to take the bar exam, our twins were born nearly three months premature. They spent almost three months in the hospital, which means that I spent the month before the bar exam studying from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Needless to say, passing the bar exam is the biggest obstacle that I have overcome in my career.
What is your professional goal five years from now?
In five years, I hope that I am still continuing to develop my practice at Nexsen Pruet (if they still want me around) and contributing to the growth of the office by recruiting and mentoring the firm’s next generation of attorneys.
