The Evolution Of Greg Blatt

He seemed to have started his career off with no real plan at all, just bussing tables and bartending in ski towns when he decided to go to Columbia Law School. He believed that he would be great at lawyering but with his hard work and dedication he would reach a much higher potential. Blatt started off his career working at two different law firms in New York City, though he gained a lot of knowledge from the experience he was searching for something more suited for himself (Crunchbase).
