The year is 1992. I am in my 16th year of law practice. My career is fulfilling, and it brings great financial rewards. My partners and I own one of Sacramento's preeminent land use law firms. European travel is at least an annual event, and I own a pressurized twin-engine airplane for more local travel. We entertain and often hold political and charitable fundraisers at our home. Our children are doing well. We love our home and neighborhood.
