The greatest city in the world, my hometown of Chicago. There’s nothing like going for a long run on the lakefront path, the skyline of architectural gems rising to the clouds on one side and the inland sea that is Lake Michigan stretching to the horizon on the other.
Environmental law is the ultimate public interest cause. I get to fight for people, plants, animals, and the planet. And getting to sue governments and corporations when they endanger our ecosystem is pretty punk rock.
