Before Kyle McFarlane began her legal career, soccer was her life. She played on the University of Denver’s NCAA Division I team, and she was good. But she was “scrappy,” as she described herself, and not necessarily the best player on the pitch in a given match. Then she competed in DU’s National Trial Team, and law would become her life. Her parents had come to watch her in a mock trial tournament, and after seeing her performance, they suggested to her what her true calling was.
“My dad said … ‘You’re better at this than I’ve ever seen you at soccer. And this just fits your personality so well,’” McFarlane said.
Today, as a family law attorney at Broxterman Alicks McFarlane, she enjoys the courtroom’s adrenaline rush and demand for quick thinking that she previously only got through sports.
