About me

Gender MALE
Industry Law
Occupation Used to be IT. Law is next.
Location Glendora, California
I am an Attorney, licensed to practice law in the State of California (SBN: 284509)

I passed the July 2012 CA Bar Exam on my 11th attempt. I clicked on the "Check Pass List" button on November 16, 2012 at about 6:15 pm.

When I saw that my 11th attempt had been successful, it was like being doused with a bucket of cold water. Chills ran down my spine as a wave of crisp cold relief washed over me.

For the first time in almost five years I wasn't facing two or three months of frantic studying, followed by three days of high stress, then months of ignoring the 8,000 pound gorilla in the corner of the room as I waited for results to be released.

This is my second career. I spent 23+ years in Information Technology.

My interim career of studying for and taking the bar exam has come to a much anticipated, and long overdue, end.
