Husband, father, lawyer, part-time blogger and hubber.

When I am not defending people against the strong arm of the state, I am moseying through life always on the lookout for something to write about.

The photo you see is of my and my wife at Peter's house in Capernaum, Israel - the site where Jesus healed Peter's mother-in-law. It seemed appropriate.

If you have a minute and are interested, please visit my blogs:
