Day 4/90 – Lunch with Andy

Day 4 of the 90 Days of Awesome is in the bank! What made today awesome? Lunch with Andy!

Andy Halaby is an intellectual property attorney at Snell and Wilmer – the biggest law firm in Phoenix. (Their lobby is bigger than my entire condo.) Everyone there wears a suit to work, so of course, I always wear jeans when I visit. He was also my trademark professor at ASU Law.

Andy’s an awesome guy. He’s been practicing law a lot longer than I have and he’s only worked at a big firm. It’s interesting to compare our perspectives on the practice of law and hearing his input on what’s changed over the years. We have a mutual non-disclosure agreement so I can’t tell you any specifics from our conversation. I sincerely value that we get to speak candidly about being lawyers and life in general.

I also invited myself to lunch with Andy to hear about his experience taking the dreaded California Bar Exam since he took and passed it fairly recently. I’m thinking about expanding my empire and subjecting myself to that layer of hell next year.
