Miles Cooley, orphaned at 5, is a high-end lawyer. Now with his friend lobbyist Duncan McFetridge he comes to Sacramento to advocate for foster kids.

 

Cee Harmon’s insight:

Miles Cooley’s mother had him when she was 17 in 1969, and fell in with a tough crowd, bikers. She’d leave for days at a time. One day he came home, and “she was lying on the floor dead.” She had overdosed. He was 5.

In 2010, he lobbied for a bill backed by his friend John Burton, the former Senate president pro tem who created a foundation to help foster children, that requires the state to care for foster kids until they turn 21. That was a major advance.
