Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

I was a drug dealer when I finished college (KU '65). I sold such exotic items as Bayer Aspirin, Dr. Lyon’s Tooth Powder and Milk of Magnesia. At one time or another I was in about every town in Kansas hawking my wares.

After that my wife and I published a small newspaper for six years in Wichita. I also served three terms in the Kansas Legislature. Ultimately, we both went back to school. I obtained a law degree (KU '74) and she a masters in journalism.

We spent a couple of years in Washington, D.C., returned to Lawrence in 1977, and I began practicing law. Since then, I have done primarily bankruptcy work for individuals.

Now, I’m semi-retired and leave most of the heavy lifting to John. He’s a little smarter than me. He got the Merit Scholarship. I was just a semi-finalist.
