What was your first job after law school? I clerked for Sam Pointer, the U.S. District Judge in Birmingham, for a year. I applied because I had great respect for Judge Pointer and because I wanted to see if there was any chance that I might want to be a litigator. At the end of the year, I told Judge Pointer that, though I may one day want to be a judge, I had no desire to come to court and argue a case in front of him! What do you do to relax? I have a place at Lake Tuscaloosa, which Henry, Members Who Motivate Us my 85-pound Goldendoodle, loves. I enjoy hanging out down there and watching the birds and fish. I’ll have folks stay over and we’ll cook and sit out on the porch and watch the boats go by. The best time of year to go is in the fall when the leaves start to turn. I love it in the morning when the lake is smooth and the leaves are reflected in the water. It’s very calm. Alyssa Prater, Contributor Just as a conductor fashions beautiful harmonies from many instruments, our mediators find harmony amid the clamor of litigation.
