Introducing the New Editorial Board

Board of Editors, 2012

Harvey Gould

A writer, columnist and member of the MPNforum Editorial Board from its inception, Gould is married, has three children, six grandchildren, four cats, and a few horses.  Before his disease forced his early retirement from the practice of law about ten years ago, he was a partner and trial attorney at a law firm in San Francisco. Currently, he’s a legal recruiter, working with attorneys interested in transferring from one law firm to another.  He is a member of several mediation panels and serves as a mediator in a variety of different kinds of cases, often on a volunteer basis

He swears he will soon get back to horseback riding, a sport both he and his wife enjoyed for many decades, but which he’s been unable to pursue in the last several years because of numerous health challenges, not only from his MF, but from other diseases as well. He wrote a book The Fierce Local, published in 2011, about the numerous times he and his wife spent in Ireland over a twenty year period, including some of the lessons they learned as a result of his MF diagnosis.
