It doesn't stink but I also don't think its "totally awesome" yet.

"Even if I have a closet of Armani suits, beachfront property and a loving family, I will not be happy if I cannot aid those who find themselves wronged, because of something I struggled so dearly to overcome.

It is not my intent to be a public defender. Despite the fact, I am not a very materialistic man, my family is counting on me to provide for my three younger sisters, and I would like to have a wonderfully well-educated family down the road. I need to achieve a certain standard of success, but only need so much."

That part needs re-writing imho.
the Armani suits etc thing doesn't come off right.
Also you go from not intending to be a PD and then somehow mentioning that "despite that" you want a wonderfully educated family. (I get that you didn't mean to link those two concepts - only the not materialistic part but yeah I think this portion needs re-working.)
