What community projects are you involved in?
I recently concluded seven years of service as the Scoutmaster of a Boy Scout Troop in Birmingham that was founded in 1942. In 2010, I organized a Venture Scout Crew, which is a co-ed Scouting unit for youth ages 14-20. I serve as the Advisor, or primarily adult leader, for that Venture Crew. I also serve as Chairman of the Vulcan District of the Greater Alabama Council. I am also a member of the Dartmouth Club of Alabama, the Birmingham Venture Club and the Sunrise Rotary Club.

What advice would you give to a young student in law school?
Take a wide variety of courses; don’t assume that your career will involve the legal specialty that seems attractive to you when you are in law school.
