"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail."
The aforementioned quote by Benjamin Franklin is a saying that Gordon Evans of The Donahey Law Firm takes to heart. In legal field or on the football field, preparation separates the good from the great. As a former athlete, Mr. Evans finds a strong connection between the competitiveness and preparation in sports and law.
Evans was a 4-year starter at middle linebacker for Kentucky Wesleyan College in Owensboro, Ky., and then went on to Capital University for law school. Following his football career, Evans took up the sport of boxing and competed nationally at amateur tournaments. He won his first national tournament in 2010 at The Ringside Tournament in Kansas City, which is the largest amateur boxing tournament in the country. Evans said that his time as an athlete really inspired him to take his competitive spirit to the courtroom.
