Two things were preached in the Cunningham house and subsequently in my house. Education and hard work. I will never forget when I was in high school coming home from college night at the high school auditorium. I grabbed a brochure for the USC Trojans and very excitingly told my father that I wanted to go to USC to become a Trojan. My Father calmly sat me down and said I have good news and bad news. First the bad news. I have no money, and I cannot pay for you to go to college. What is the good news? I replied. He said, there will always be food in the refrigerator.
So, I decided to attend Glendale Community College, then Arizona State University, followed by the University of Arizona College of Law. I supported myself by working selling clothes and working as a landscaper in 110-degree Arizona heat, paying for every penny of my college education. In the summer of 1984, I put everything that I owned into my 1972 Volkswagen Van that had no heater or air condition and drove to Tucson for Law School. Unfortunately, my father died from lung cancer in my first year of law school, so he never got to see me graduate from law school and never got to see my two beautiful children, twins Gabrielle and Daniel. Gabrielle is a nurse practitioner and Daniel is an attorney licensed in both Arizona and Nevada and now practicing law with me.
