Miscellaneous

Paul and his family have always enjoyed spending time in parks. After living for a few years near Chicago’s Lincoln Park, it was a priority, when shopping for a first house upon moving back to Milwaukee in 2002, to find a house located a near a park. Fortunately, he and his wife, Kelly, found a 1929 bungalow a stone’s throw from Milwaukee County’s Jackson Park on the city’s south side. While living there, Paul decided to attend law school after years in the diamond and jewelry business. As luck would have it, the Milwaukee County Parks Department was looking for a Contract Services Officer shortly after Paul graduated from Marquette University Law School in 2008. It came as no surprise to Paul’s wife that he applied for and accepted the position with the Parks Department, turning down offers from two private law firms to do so. After nearly three and a half years at Parks, Paul joined the Office of Corporation Counsel. The rest is history.
