Mr. McConnell's first interest in becoming a lawyer was after giving his 8th grade class graduation commencement speech in Chicago, Illinois. A realization that Mr. McConnell was never going to hit a fast ball and achieve fame and fortune as a baseball player also lead to a decision to attend college and later law school. He is the first in his family to graduate from college and obtain a professional degree.
When not practicing law, his hobbies include, reading, history, biography, music, traveling, and contributing to his community in San Clemente by serving as a Commissioner on the Beaches, Parks and Recreation Commission.
One of many favorite quotes:
"The leading rule for the lawyer, as for the man, of every calling is diligence. Leave nothing for tomorrow, which can be done today." Abraham Lincoln--Notes on the Practice of Law circa 1850.
