As you all know, the tagline of our firm is“Lawyers Ready to Fight,”but did you know that Jack was an actual fighter? It’s true! Back in high school, Jack was into amateur martial arts and has always been a boxing fan. So why is this important? Jack has agreed to take part in the first Barrister’s Brawl. The brainchild of a fellow attorney, this event will hopefully garner enough matches to support a full-blown charity event on behalf of continued relief efforts in Puerto Rico. Currently Jack is the only match on the undercard (the poor guy doesn’t even have an opponent yet!), but that hasn’t stopped him from being excited about the prospect of getting back into a ring. He’s already down three pounds at the time of this writing and is looking forward to continuing to get into fighting shape. In business news, we have a new number dedicated to texting that we’ve started using to confirm appointments and stay in contact with clients and future clients. Watch your emails for details on saving that number. It’s one more way we want to stay in touch.

Can you name all 44 U.S. presidents? By most estimates, only about 1% of Americans know the name of every person who’s held the country’s highest office. To help make you a member of that exclusive club, here is one fun fact about each of our commanders in chief just in time for the Fourth of July.

Despite appearing to have worn a wig, George Washington’s hair was entirely his own. The stark white color was the result of careful powdering. John Adams was a prolific writer of love letters. We know of more than 1,000 correspondences between him and his wife, Abigail. Thomas Jefferson maintained a well-stocked wine cellar. In fact, he was one of early America’s foremost experts on the beverage. James Madison was America’s smallest president in terms of stature. He stood 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weighed about 100 pounds. Washington isn’t the only future president in the famous painting “Washington Crossing the Delaware.” If you look closely, you’ll see James Madison holding the flag. John Quincy Adams was the only president to serve in the House of Representatives after his time in the Oval Office. Andrew Jackson challenged over 100 men to duels during his lifetime but killed only one. Known as Old Kinderhook, Martin Van Buren’s campaign slogan popularized the term“OK.” William Henry Harrison was the first president to die in office. He fell ill of either typhoid or pneumonia and passed away only 31 days into his tenure. After his time as president, John Tyler ran for Confederate office. Many viewed him as a traitor at the time of his death.

James K. Polk was a temperate man who didn’t have time for fun and games. He even banned dancing in the White House. Zachary Taylor contracted cholera from a bowl of cherries served with milk. He died five days after being exposed. Millard Fillmore once personally helped put out a fire at the Library of Congress. During his lifetime, many people believed Franklin Pierce ran over a woman with his carriage. Historians dispute the validity of this story. Every single president has been married at some point except James Buchannan, who remained a bachelor until his dying day. Abraham Lincoln is enshrined in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, having won over 300 matches. No president had humbler beginnings than Andrew Johnson. He spent two years as an indentured servant before running away with his brother. What does the “S.” stand for in Ulysses S. Grant? Nothing, it’s just an “S.” In 1880, Rutherford B. Hayes became the first sitting president to lay eyes on the Pacific Ocean. James Garfield was ambidextrous and would often write different documents with both hands, sometimes inmultiple languages.
