“Taking a Different Trail: A Bad Job in Fast Food Spurred Stan Johnson Toward Law”

Phoenix Business Journal

Below is an excerpt:

When Stan Johnson was a teenager in Illinois, he worked at Hardee's, and he hated that job. Johnson said he despised the job so much he burned his uniform when he quit. It was one of his motivations for becoming an attorney. "I actually took it out back and doused it in lighter fluid," said Johnson, now Arizona Real Estate Practice Group chair at the Quarles & Brady LLP law firm in Phoenix. Johnson even danced around the burning fast-food uniform outside his parents' house.
