Cookies, Musicals and a Tricycle

Discovery with Taimur Case

My nickname is … I don’t have one, but I’m constantly surprised by the shorthand versions of my name that people create.

If you were in my office, you’d … see a red tricycle. Feel free to take it for a spin around the floor!

The lawyer I most admire is … Thurgood Marshall.

When I started, I wish I knew … everyone else is just as clueless as I am. We’ll all get it together. Someday. Maybe?

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … on stage. Musical theater was my first love.

On weekends I … try to spend as much time as possible with my wife and three little ones. 

The talent I wish I had is … playing piano.

On my best day I … find the best in the people around me.

On my worst day I … succumb to the pessimism (or, at least, skepticism) that is birthed out of disappointment.

My motto is … “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” Thanks, Yoda!

A recurring dream I have is … that I’m still in school and I missed my exams/term paper. It’s terrible.

The one thing that I would change about the legal profession is … the stock we place in traditional proxies of intelligence—LSAT scores, law school ranking, grades.

Nothing cheers me up like … freshly baked cookies.
