Before turning to the practice scenarios in Section III, we should discuss several real-life examples of individuals who successfully acted on their values in legal settings. The approaches the protagonists take in these scenarios, however, are neither perfect nor the only ways for them to act on their values. Similarly, the particular approaches adopted below may not work in every situation. Instead, the purpose of including these real-life, imperfect examples is to demonstrate what acting on your values might look like and to provide reassurance that it can be done. Finally, I changed the names of the people and the firms involved in these scenarios to protect their identities.
