Point Blank

Joe Verser with wife Jill, son Bowen, 6, and daughters Sadie and Audrey, 4.

My new year’s resolution is to  board more airplanes to fun destinations with my wife.

Something I hope that 2022 brings is  calmness.

The best thing about a fresh start is  you get to be the writer, director, producer and actor of your own future.

Something wise someone once told me was  when you make a mistake, every instinct inside us tells us to minimize it, to spin it, but in the end, it’s always best to own the mistake and everything works out.

Something wise I once told someone else was  if you shoot for the tree-tops and miss, you’ll hit the ground; if you shoot for the moon and miss, you’ll land in the tree-tops. 

A nickname I have been given that I like the most is  the Baron of the Backwater (don’t ask — it was given by my wife’s cousins). 

I have learned in my years in law  two things: (1) trying cases is an art, not a science, and (2) a “win” is beating the last offer. 

A cause I am in passionate support of is  public libraries.

Something I do every day that I enjoy is  putting my children to bed at night.

My favorite material possessions are  photographs of my parents who have both passed. 

If I had an unexpected day off, I would spend it  going someplace new and different with my wife and our three children.

A song that calms me is  “November Rain” by Guns ’n’ Roses.

When I need inspiration, I turn to  my wife.

Something that I hope people think when I leave a room is  that they felt that I was “present” and that I care.
