Pinstripe suits. Briefcases. Long hours in a stuffy conference room. If these are the types of images that come to mind when you think about a law firm, think again. At Arent Fox, lawyers have a “life outside the law.” Or at least that’s what a new section on the firm’s Web site boasts. Who knew, for instance, that estate planning partner Holly Bastian is an instrument-rated private pilot? That labor and employment partner Stephen Yohay has played keyboard in a local “oldies” rock �n’ roll band for more than 25 years? Or that IP partner William Marames is one of only a small number of individuals who speak Vlach, the language of a people who lived mainly in the Balkan Mountains of what is today Greece and Albania? “All of us feel that we are more than just a r�sum� with our practice areas on it,” says Marc Fleischaker, firm chair. Not every attorney posts hobbies. And Fleischaker is the first to concede that his hobbies — golfing, running, and watching the Washington Wizards — are rather mundane. Still, he says, even if it doesn’t bring extra business, “it gives you a better sense of the person.” But at least one partner, Alan Reider, chair of the firm’s health care practice, makes no bones about his lawyerly lifestyle. “Alan,” his bio states, “has no life beyond the law.”
