What is your current job and tell us a little about what you do?
I'm a lawyer at Smith + Malek. My practice focuses on business and real estate. I'd say more about what I do everyday but I don't think I can make it very interesting. But I know how to draft a contract, sue people and create a sewer easement however I haven't figured out how to get out of a traffic ticket.
How long have you been a member of The Coeur Group and what is your best experience so far?
I've been a member of the Coeur Group since we all met at Ben Miller's office at 1st and Sherman. Someone smarter than me can figure out the year but it was some time ago. The best experience so far was preparing for the candidate forum and coming up with questions we wish we could ask...but there was no way Jimmy would ever let us ask.
What's your favorite moment of your career to this point?
The argument at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Smith v. Obama was an amazing experience. But, I have to say, the best part of my career so far was my wife Anna saying "I'm kidding" after she said she didn't see my name on the Bar Exam pass list.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
In the winter, skiing and right now watching Frontier on Netflix. In the summer, biking and trying to hit a golf ball straight. The rest of my free time is spent trying to get my iPhone charger back from my kids and working on being an active listener.
Why would you recommend The Coeur Group to a colleague?
The The Coeur Group is making the world a better place and having fun while doing it. An added bonus is someone in the group always knows someone who can build a great deck or do a gentle vasectomy.
