Baker Donelson Bearman Caldwell & Berkowitz, PC
Areas of practice:
My practice is primarily focused on representing health insurers and managed care entities (HMOs, Third Party Administrators) in both litigation and regulatory matters.
Favorite BRBA project or event:
Belly Up with the Bar.
My wife, Erin, is a Pre-K3 teacher at Trinity Episcopal Day School, and we have two boys, Carter (9) and McCoy (7).
I spend most of my free time coaching my sons' baseball teams. My seven-year-old's team recently won the 7U USSSA World Series.
Best thing about being a lawyer:
The fact that I am constantly challenged by my work. This is especially true in my practice area, as the health care industry is constantly evolving.
Favorite food or restaurant:
I am a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy, so any nice steak house will do just fine.
Probably going to the Virgin Islands with my wife for her 30th birthday.
What was the turning point that made you decide to become an attorney:
The turning point that made me decide to become an attorney was when I suffered my second major arm injury while pitching in minor league baseball. At that point, I figured I would have to break down and get a real job.
If I had more time, I would:
Spend it coaching / teaching. There is nothing more rewarding than coaching young kids and watching them develop both their skills and a love for the game.
I am on the Board of Directors for the Capital Area March of Dimes.
Suggestions for young lawyers:
Seek out good mentors.
