Curtis says: “I joined Yates & Yates in 1999 and became a partner in 2005. Sometimes people tell me that I’m the only attorney they’ve met who loves what he does. And I consider myself extremely blessed to do what I love with people I love. But the best part of my job isn’t that I get to work with my dad and my brother. It’s not that I get to work with outstanding, ethical, Christian attorneys and colleagues.
And, as wonderful as this is, it’s not that my office is only four miles away from my home in beautiful, sunny Southern California. The best part of my job is coming alongside passionate, articulate, gifted Christian communicators, using my strengths to guide, counsel, and protect them, fiercely advocate for them, and help them advance life- and culture-transforming messages for the sake of the Kingdom. That’s what gets me out of bed in the morning.
By the time I started at Westmont College, where I met my beautiful wife Karen, I had pretty much decided I was going to law school. My early motivation for this was the realization that I loved to debate and I loved to win. I explored politics, spending a semester in Washington, DC in 1995, including interning on Capitol Hill. Deciding politics was not conducive to a family lifestyle, I plotted a course toward litigation. During my time at Pepperdine University Law School, I clerked for a few different litigation firms, including one of the largest firms in the world.
I learned through those experiences that I would have been very frustrated in that field. When I joined Yates & Yates, I planned to fully engage in the firm’s general business transactional practice. Instead, I spent a great deal of my early days immersed in publishing agreements, manuscripts, and author meetings, discovering a passion for words, books, ideas and helping authors and creative types to make the most of their ideas, passions, and platforms.
I’ve been married to Karen for 11 years. We have 3 beautiful children, 2 boys and an adorable girl. When I’m not working (and sometimes while I am), you’ll find me watching the Angels, the Broncos, or March Madness. On weekends, I’m typically out in the yard playing wiffle ball with my kids. And most nights I fall into bed wishing I had more time to finish reading the Wall Street Journal.”
