Paul Swegle

Weekday Habitat

Paul’s zest for adventure means that his weekday habit is less predictable than most. Whether he’s standing on top of a mountain, flying down the highway on his motorcycle, or banging away on his drum set, Paul is likely to be laughing and discussing one of his prior contract negotiations or the latest hike he embarked on.

For fun

Outside of his legal career, Paul enjoys hiking and climbing mountains, riding his Harley Davidson, writing books, drumming in his band, and travelling the country teaching attorneys and entrepreneurs the lessons he’s learned throughout his career.
