Chewelah, Washington is a one-stoplight town nestled in Eastern Washington. It was not the inspiration for John Mellencamp’s 1985 hit, but it could have been. Chewelah is the “small town” where Travis grew up and it is an important component of who he is today. According to Travis, you have not lived until you have skied the slopes of 49 Degrees North, played a round at Chewelah’s municipal golf course, or have swum in Browns Lake.
Today, Travis lives and practices law in New York City, a slightly larger town. But he strives to maintain the practical approach to life and work that he learned in Chewelah. Not many New York litigators were raised on dirt roads or spent their summers stacking hay in barns. Travis believes this is to his advantage. Oftentimes in litigation it is the straightforward solution that is the best. Travis brings this approach to the commercial disputes and employment matters that he focuses on in order to achieve positive and cost effective outcomes for his clients.
When he is not litigating, Travis enjoys drinking wine with his wife Nicole, practicing yoga and meditation, and even sewing his own pocket squares. Travis also plays in a recreational basketball league most weeks. Although some may say Travis has lost a step since he played NCAA Division III hoops behind the “pinecone curtain” at Whitworth University, he will assure you that it does not require quickness to make three point baskets.
Mr. Meserve is an associate based in the New York office with a focus on commercial litigation and employment matters.
