Nick Brestoff (MS '71)

After Caltech, USC Law, and a career as a litigator, I retired and moved to the Seattle area. Then my head cleared. I now lead a tech startup, Intraspexion, which uses Deep Learning to enable corporate counsel to avoid lawsuits, instead of managing them. My patent is entitled, "Using Classified Text and Deep Learning Algorithms to Identify Risk and Provide Early Warning." I gave my first public talk about Intraspexion on November 7, 2016, at the AI World Conference & Expo in San Francisco.

Personal notes: Lois Montague and I married in 1975. Along the way Lois and I had two sons, Daniel and Jonathan. Daniel is a firearms expert. Jon is an MD-PhD, who is currently a resident in clinical pathology at Wash U. We have 3 grandchildren, ages 18, 1, and 1. They are as much fun and as scary as a startup.
