"States Take Aim at 'Bully Bosses'"
"Improving Your Voice Quality Can Improve Your Career"

Former Paralegal Now GC

This "New at the Top" profile of attorney Arleigh V. Closser will inspire those paralegals thinking about law school:

"Position: Vice president, general counsel and secretary, Multimax, a Herndon company that provides enterprise information technology, communications services and solutions to support federal military and civilian agencies and state and local government.

"How did you get to where you are?

"I grew up near a small town south of Pittsburgh, as the sixth of seven children. My father passed away while I was young. So I have my mother, Sarah, to thank for somehow successfully raising seven children, all of whom are college graduates. I followed two brothers to Princeton. As a freshman, I made the varsity wrestling team and we won two Ivy League championships. This experience of having to succeed in an extremely demanding academic environment while competing in a Division I sport gave me the confidence to know that one can make and achieve demanding goals with hard work.

"My first job out of college was as a paralegal with the law firm of McKenna & Cuneo. This was fortuitous because the firm was the birthplace of the practice of government contracts law in 1939. So it was only a matter of time before I was assigned to work with a government contracts case -- the A-12, the stealth Navy aircraft that was never built -- which turned out to be the largest default termination of a government contract in history. The case is still in litigation today."
