I have been attorney for 24 years. I had a private general practice in the areas of divorce, criminal law, personal injury, real estate and litigation. I have have closed my practice and am now a full time prosecutor. My kids are grown. I am a musician, scuba diver, hangglider, self proclaimed handy-man. Now its time to try my hand in the stock market. I am a political science major/economics minor in college. I have no financial background, except for my own personal finances. I am not an experienced day trader. My first stock purchases were five years ago: Playboy (I thought that would be funny) and SIrrrius. Both horrible choices. In August, a friend tipped me to VRINGO by showing me a review on the Seeking Alpha site. I was able to follow the logic of the potential of the lawsuit and it made sense so I bought 500 shares. I will be watching VRINGO but experimenting with Penny Stocks and see how things go. I am interesting in learning more about options, stop calls and all that stuff. Wish me luck.
