Ariel Risinger, JD ’15, an associate attorney at Day Pitney, recently made headlines in Law360 Pulse for her accomplishments in competitive powerlifting. Risinger was introduced to the sport in 2018 and secured her first win this May, placing in the top spot for her bracket after she deadlifted 363.7 pounds.
When asked about her approach to competitions she told Law360 Pulse "I'm just going to go out there and do my best, regardless if it's as a lawyer, or in powerlifting, or in whatever I do." She continued, "My career as a lawyer has been very atypical, so I always tell law students and new lawyers that you don't have to follow the same path that everyone expects you to follow in order to get to the place you want to go."
