Father’s Day Attorney Spotlight: Brian P. Strong
June 17, 2015
Katherman Briggs & Greenberg personal injury and wrongful death attorney Brian P. Strong is a family man outside of the office and courtroom.
For Father’s Day, Brian responded to a few questions on what it’s like to be a dad to his son Dan, 18, and daughter Lena, 16. Read the interview below:
What’s the best piece of advice you ever received on the subject of fatherhood? From whom?
The best “advice” I think I have received is the example of my father. My father was a great dad and I have tried hard to follow his example.
How do you balance work and family?
From the beginning of my career, I have managed to balance work and family with planning and great support from my wife. Planning ahead with busy calendars and so many events is key.
Would your kids describe you as a: parent, coach, mentor, friend, instructor, kid yourself?
I would like to think they would include all of those in their descriptions. I have coached my kids in a variety of sports. Being an instructor and a teacher to your children is one of the best parts of parenting. Simple things like riding a bike or more complicated advice and instruction are fun to give (especially if they listen!). As the kids become young adults, of course I am and want to be their friend, but sometimes, being a good dad means saying no as well.
