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.
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.
