Paul R. Lipton is an attorney, a speaker, a legal consultant, and a blogger. He is currently a co-chair of the Eleventh Circuit Committee on Professionalism in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Hour of the Wolf is his first book.
As an attorney, Paul tried cases for more than forty years. He has litigated numerous jury and non-jury trials in complex commercial, probate, estate, and trust cases involving national and international companies. Paul began his career as an assistant district attorney in Nassau County, New York, before moving to Florida. Once there, he practiced law in a number of firms. For thirteen years, he was a trial attorney with the international law firm of Greenberg Traurig. Paul was a principal shareholder there at the time he retired from the active practice of law.
Paul is a frequent speaker to various bar associations, bank and trust companies, and law firm meetings. The topics he addresses in his speeches include finding a balanced life in a profession and world that seems out of balance, how to maintain professional conduct in an increasingly unprofessional world, and finding your moral compass in the uncharted territory of demands being made just to get the result no matter the consequences.
As an undergraduate, Paul attended Penn State University, where he was a member of the history, political science, and social science honor societies. He also performed in a number of theater productions, including Brigadoon. Paul then attended Washington University School of Law, where he was a note editor for the Urban Law Annual.
In 2010, Paul started writing “The Ageless Experiment,” a blog on living outside limitations, with posts on finding the sweet spot in life where as you age you continue to challenge yourself to be all you can be without regard to age or any other definition, and without restrictions, either self-imposed or societally imposed.
Paul has been married to Margie since 1968. They have two beautiful daughters, Melissa and Lindsay, and two sons-in-law, Mason and Brad. Paul and Margie also have three wonderful grandchildren, Ryan, Reghan, and Hunter.
A longtime resident of Miami, Florida, Paul now lives in Boulder, Colorado.
