Success Stories: Daniel P. Hunsberger and Lindsay Lambert: Lawyer Firefighters

FiretruckAsk any 6-year old boy what he wants to be when he grows up, and we'll bet the ranch that far more will choose "fireman" than "lawyer." Well, kids, you can have your cake and eat it too.

Exemplars of civic duty, Connecticut attorney Daniel P. Hunsberger, a partner at Maurer & Associates, and Houston attorney Lindsay Lambert, a partner at Hughes Watters Askanase, both serve as volunteer firefighters.

For details about Hunsberger career as a firefighter, visit the website of the Uniformed Professional Firefighters Association of Connecticut where Hunsberger is Vice President (scroll down a bit from the top of the page to read Hunsberger's bio).

Since 2005, Lambert has been one of 18 trained volunteer men and women who are part of the Fire Department in Bellaire, Texas, and who assist the department's full-time professional firefighters by covering calls and operating equipment as needed. Lambert has trained in such techniques as navigating in extremely smoky situations, and searching for adults or children who may be inside a burning structure. The commitment for volunteers such as Lambert is 24/7/365 -- to drop everything and go immediately to the fire station (or wherever they are dispatched) and be prepared to do whatever they are directed to do.

For further details about Lambert's work as a firefighter, see here (in The Houston Lawyer's Off the Record column).
