I became a lawyer because my dad was a lawyer and when I was young, he took me to court a couple of times downtown Phoenix. And I grew up in Mesa so going downtown was a big deal, going in these tall buildings and going up the escalator that kind of a thing. But I enjoy the idea of the fight of the rules and using that to the benefit of the angle that I’m pursuing. So even in Monopoly that kind of a thing I always enjoyed using the rules. In football when I was a kid playing football, I would always press the rules so that my team could win. But that’s how I was, that’s just my nature. A little bit contentious.
