The people who use our boards.
Who are you, and what do you do? What do you like to do outside of work?
My name is Pinita, and I’m a legal maverick who traded rocket science dreams for the world of law. Armed with an astrophysics degree and a heart for justice, I’ve journeyed from personal injury law to FDA food law and beyond, eventually finding my way back to the rugged landscapes of rural Wyoming where I grew up.
When the courtroom lights dim, I spend a lot of time outdoors with my trio of furry companions—two Czech shepherds and a little weenie dog, who guide my fly-fishing, hiking, and wildlife-watching adventures. The tranquil Wyoming backdrop contrasts with the high-stakes world of law, offering a serene escape where buffalo and moose hold dominion. I am also an avid reader, frequently embarking on epic literary journeys, pausing only to delve into classic cinema treasures.
What hardware do you use?
In the realm of tech, I’m no stranger to efficient simplicity. My trusty hardware, a hand-me-down custom build from my gamer husband with no specs I can describe, serves as my digital companion. But an upgrade to a sleek Logitech MX Master 3S adds a touch of modernity to my workspace.
And what software?
As a lawyer, Microsoft Office is my canvas. But legal databases like Westlaw sculpt the foundation of my research. Softcover statute books offer a tactile link to tradition, merging the physical with the digital.
What’s your keyboard setup like? Do you use a custom layout or custom keycaps?
Navigating the virtual wilderness demands a keyboard as agile as my legal mind. Enter the Moonlander Mark I with Cherry MX Brown switches—a split-keyboard marvel that rescues my tennis elbow from the aching abyss. With a layout that accommodates legal citation symbols, this keyboard revolutionizes my workflow. And yes, I must admit, the LEDs match my daily attire—because even a small country lawyer knows that style matters.
What would be your dream setup?
My aspirations stretch beyond the courtroom. Imagining a workspace akin to Minority Report’s futuristic splendor, I yearn for the ability to weave graphics, video, and documents with the flick of a hand. Until then, an industrial L-shaped workbench beckons, where scattered materials morph into organized genius. The Illum Desk Lamp and the Kelvin LED Table Lamp illuminate the path to focus and brilliance, while the Samsung 49” Odyssey OLED G95SC DQHD Neo Quantum Processor Pro 0.03ms 240Hz Curved Smart Gaming Monitor paints a canvas expansive enough for the grandest legal narratives.
