Two hacking skills that make a good lawyer


– Obviously you mentioned it, that you’re a former
hacker who’s a lawyer, rather than a lawyer who
learned a little bit about tech, but what are some of the
specific skills that you learned as a hacker, be it
problem-solving or whatever, that helped you most in
your work as a lawyer? – Sure, sure. I’ll tell you, there are two skillsets that every hacker has,
and once you learn them, they are a life’s lesson. And the skills are
patience and confidence. Patience and confidence. It is crucial, any good
hacker has patience to keep trying, and if
something doesn’t work, try it in a different way, and if something doesn’t work,
try it in a different way, and that’s not to say
you don’t get frustrated. You get frustrated, but
you’re patient enough to understand that the
frustration is situational. It’s situational. Stay with it, and eventually
that will go away. And that leads into the
other, the other thing, which is confidence. You have to know that there is a hole. There’s a way. There’s something there,
and you’ll get to it, if you have enough patience,
and you don’t give up, and you don’t allow your frustration to overtake your patience, well then you can remain confident,
you stay with it, and whether it’s brute force hacking or password guessing
or social engineering, whatever it is, or even in life right, with lawyers, or doctors, or any service. You stay patient. If it doesn’t work, you
try it a different way, if it doesn’t work, a third way. If that doesn’t work, I
think there’s a fourth way. There’s gotta be a fourth way. Be confident that you
know what you’re dying and you understand your skillset, you’re gonna get the goal. You’re gonna get to where you wanna be. Every hacker learns that at an early age. I learned it and it’s
really, really helped me in my career, most definitely.
