Seeking to be the General Counsel for small and medium sized businesses
Introduction
A husband, a father, a lawyer, a HUGE soccer fan and a guy who is pursuing happiness and sometimes catch it.  I care about politics, but not so much that I would consider running for office, I care about education because I don't think we are doing a very good job on behalf of our kids.  What else?  When in doubt, you can find me playing or watching soccer, listening to music or reading.
