What Lawyers Can Learn from Tommy Boggs

What the legal world needs more of: rapt storytellers with engaging, big personalities, who are charismatic, willing to go against the grain, and of course smart and good at what they do.

The legal community suddenly lost one bright light—acclaimed lobbyist Thomas (Tommy) H. Boggs, Jr.—on a September day in 2014. Like or dislike his politics or his clients or his law firm management skills, but appreciate his successes. I can’t help but wish that there were more lawyers like him: rapt storytellers, engaging, big personalities, charismatic, willing to go against the grain, and of course smart and good at what they do.

I still remember Tommy Boggs paying a visit to my law school Legislative Advocacy class some 25-odd years ago. He was the type of lawyer whose name law students knew. If you wanted to become a lobbyist, you wanted to work for Tommy Boggs. I imagine that he enjoyed his life and his career. Every lawyer should be so happy.
