After having read your PS, I did not feel i got a sense of you at all. Your dad's death is something that you wrote about without emotion. I think it would be more interesting the the admissions ppl if you spend more time on how you dealt with your father's death emotionally. You said that you had hated him... How did that affect how you dealt with his death? Do you still harbor angry feelings for him? Was running his business even harder knowing you had unresloved issues with you're father? I understand that you probably want to demonstrate to the admissions ppl that you could handle a lot under pressure and such large responsibilities at a reletively young age.... But there is that old adage: Show don't tell.... So, I think that you could explore the human side of your story a bit more and then, along the way, mention how you ran this business and how it interested you in a particular type of law. Definitely stay away from course language.
Also, i think your PS should talk about either ur dad's death OR your panic disorder.... you can certainly mention both, but if you try to go into depth about both, i think thats a huge mistake. Your personal statement is not going to be long enough to do them both justice. If you decide to go with the panic attack part of your essay, I would leave the reader in suspence. Describe your first panic attack... say something like: "All of a sudden, I was grabbed by this blinding pain. Everything went dark. My heart was beating so fast I thought it would go through my chest. I knew that I was dying." Then go on to explain that you later found out that it was just a panic attack. Explain you you could not fathom how you could have felt like you were dying and it was just a panic attack. Avoid talking about it being a trendy disease. Then, go on to explain how you continued to suffer from symptoms everyday (although, personally, if this were my PS, i might avoid this becuase law school is very stressful, and they will want to pick an applicant who they think will succeed).
Definitely be careful about how you talk about wanting to help others. They way you have it now, and i understand its a rough draft, sounds way to cliche and detracts heavily from your essay. It was wonderful to hear that your experience taught you about waht kind of law you want to do and that you have some kind of driving passion behind your choice... but once you go into the: i don't want this to happen to another 22 year old.... i got completely turned off.
most importantly.... Make sure your language is polished and mature... avoid phrases like "pssied-off" becuase there are rare cases where that would actually work.......
But take my advice in stride... i am no admissions officer, so I obviously don't know exactly what they are looking for.
