Sandra Krumbein, a Real Estate partner in Shutts & Bowen’s Fort Lauderdale office, was recently profiled on Law.com about her journey to becoming the successful lawyer she is today.
Before she was an attorney, Sandra was a social worker in New York working with teens aging out of foster care. Often ignored by the system while advocating on behalf of the children, she realized she could make more of a difference working within the system as a lawyer.
“There are so many ways social work and the skills I learned in that profession have served my law career,” states Sandra. “Social work is a ‘people’ profession that requires strong listening and empathy skills, as well as analytics and problem-solving abilities. I bring all those qualities to my law practice and, as a result, I believe my ability to ‘hear’ my clients’ needs and meet their legal needs is unique because of my early social work career.”
Sandra believes that her previous experience and prior career gave her a maturity and a unique edge, leading to a successful law school experience and practice.
During the interview, Sandra shares the greatest influences in her career and what she believes is the key to successful business development.
