My name is JAKE BROOKS
and I work at Bricklin & Newman, LLP, in our Spokane
office. I practice environmental and land use law. After
graduating from Lewis and
Clark Law School in Portland,
Oregon, my fiancée and I
moved to Spokane, where we
live with our happy dog and
grouchy cat. I can be reached
at email@example.com or
Before law school, I worked as a whitewater rafting guide in Colorado.
In my practice, I work on improving my writing skills every day.
My career has surprised me by presenting new challenges all the time,
so I am never bored.
If I could have tried one famous case, it would be TVA v. Hill.
Technology has changed the practice of law by giving me flexibility
in where I work, and also reduced the amount of paper I have to lug around.
During my free time, I cycle, backpack, and garden.
The most memorable trip I ever took was backpacking through the
Maroon Bells in Colorado. It was four days of epic climbs and amazing views.
I absolutely can’t live without basketball. I became a huge Trail Blazers
fan in law school.
I have recently tried or want to try fly fishing. There are too many beautiful streams in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho not to get out there.
My fitness routine is my morning bike commute.
My favorite place in the Pacific Northwest is the Hood River Valley.
I grew up in Arkansas.
Nobody would ever suspect that I was quite literally raised in a barn.
My parents brought me home from the hospital to a barn that had been
partially converted to a home. I have the perfect excuse whenever I leave
a door open.
Friends would describe me as even-keeled.
I give back to my community by serving on the Spokane Plan Commission.
This is on my bucket list: hike the Pacific Crest Trail.
An item I will never throw out is my grandma’s 1969 Gibson guitar.
My dream trip would be to New Zealand.
I would like to meet Teddy Roosevelt, because no one had a more boisterous spirit than him!
My first car was a 1991 Dodge Shadow convertible.
My all-time favorite movie or TV show is Arrested Development.
If I have learned one thing in life, it is that there is a lot I don’t know.
