News from the Desk: April 2018

By April 10, 2018 March 4th, 2020 No Comments

Happy April! We hope you’re enjoying the longer days, the blooming plants and the hint of warmer weather to come!

The first article in my new American Bar Association GPSolo eReport series, Athlete to Advocate, went live last month! I enjoyed interviewing my fellow athletes-turned-attorneys for this series and exploring the inspiring connection between participating in competitive sports and becoming an attorney. Please take a look and let me know what you think!

A proud Georgetown alum, I’m looking forward to John Carroll Weekend in Seattle this coming weekend! As the website says: “A trademark celebration of the Georgetown University Alumni Association, this annual gathering features an extended weekend packed full of specially curated events and excursions.”  I’ll be attending a few presentations by noted authors, speakers and scholars, such as Chokehold: Race Relations and Criminal Justice in America, in which Law Professor Paul Butler “will discuss why current efforts to reform law enforcement will not create lasting change.” On Saturday, I’ll be at the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Alliance’s Second Annual Alumni Pitch Competition “as four alumni-led startups pitch their business ideas for eight minutes each, “Shark Tank-style,” to a live audience and panel of judges.” This is the first time that the John Carroll Weekend has ever been held in Seattle, and I am thrilled to be able to attend with hundreds of alumni from all over the world.

As always, I would love to hear your questions and comments. If you have any questions about our firm and the work we do, please contact us or visit our website.
