First Setback

As someone who has failed the bar LSAT exam, I can totally sympathize with this.

Here’s an email first daughter Emily Pataki sent out today to her colleagues at White and Case:

There are many things I have been blessed and graced with in this life.

I am blessed to work at a brilliant place like White and Case. Although failing the Bar Exam is not something I would wish on my worst enemy, it is something I have to accept at this point in time.

I do not know all of you personally, and I may not ever get to know you all, but for those of you I’ve had the pleasure of working with and getting to know, I hope you know I did my very best, and have come to a crossroads where my best just was not good enough, the first time around.

I’ll try and keep my chin up and will work even harder to earn the respect of you all, please know already that you have mine.
