As many of you know, I have been fortunate to be an active member of the Contra Costa County Bar Association and have served on the Board of Directors for several years. The Bar Association is one of the great professional organizations to which I belong and contribute in connection with my “day job.”
When I am not involved with the CCCBA, or providing legal services to clients, I try to enjoy family time and giving back to the community in additional ways. This past year, I had the privilege of serving as the President of Walnut Creek Little League. It was an honor to be President and to have worked with other community volunteers during the 75th anniversary of Little League, the 40th anniversary of Softball Little League, and the 25th anniversary of Little League’s Challenger Division. Coincidentally, this year was also Walnut Creek’s 100th birthday. This past season, WCLL served a record number of players (almost 900) ranging from ages 5-14 years old.
These two worlds collided in the August 2014 edition of the Contra Costa Lawyer magazine. The entire edition of the magazine was devoted to the “secret lives” of legal professionals in Contra Costa County. Nicole Mills (a wonderful legal professional and mother of two WCLL players) exposed to the local legal community my secret life as WCLL President. Thank you Nicole for a flattering article, and for helping to expose the far more interesting secret lives of other Contra Costa County attorneys and judges.
