DWT Diversity

Everett Jack Jr.

Vice Chair, Litigation Practice

Hometown: Portland, Ore.

Year you joined DWT: 1990

How you describe your work to a kid: I help people work out their problems in front of a judge.

Diversity hero: So many people have influenced the way I see and think about things, including my parents, teachers, classmates, and others both younger and older than me.

Why you serve on the diversity committee: I believe that most people try to do the right thing in their community.   But for those who lack “real world” experience with diversity, the experience is always awkward and can be a struggle. Our goal should be to help make diversity experiences for these people less awkward and less of a struggle. I think my personal background and work history is helpful in this process.

Personal goal in five years: Get closer to figuring out what I want to be when I grow up, while staying personally and professionally satisfied in the interim.
