My dad was a lawyer and then later a judge and so people say well, you must have known early on. It wasn’t until I got into late high school and actually really college that I started learning what he did. He never talked about what he did at home. But once I showed an interest, he was very much a mentor to me. And actually, the first time it started is my senior year in high school. We had an issue that came up and the school board president I ended up being a spokesperson for the student group involved in the issue. And the school board president was a friend of my dad’s and the day after a key meeting where the board voted and I had made a presentation he visited my dad and said, “Have you ever talked to Paul about law school?” So I must have done okay that night.
