What is your greatest fear? Probably much like most attorneys, failure. Necessary extravagance? Satellite radio in my car. I couldn't imagine driving without it. What is your most treasured possession? The Fender guitar my parents gave me for my birthday when I turned 13. They also surprised me with guitar lessons that day which I took until I graduated high school. I still play it to this day. When and where were you happiest? Probably the night I celebrated passing the bar with my family. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Being able to get to bed early and fall asleep quickly. I have always been a night owl, and it's something I've struggled with my whole life. Greatest achievement: Graduating from law school. What advice would you give law school students? Just remember that it can only get better. Favorite movie: Slapshot. It's the best hockey movie and one of the best sports movies ever. Favorite drink: Green tea and coffee are my two favorite drinks. Favorite place to spend money: I buy almost everything from there. What is your motto? "Talent is a great thing, but if you think talent wins, it doesn't. Work wins.'' - Mike Babcock Where would you like to be when you're 90? Although it's pretty cliché, retired someplace warm with my family after a (hopefully) successful career. Published: Mon, Feb 13, 2012
