Daniel M. Alsup

Modrall, Sperling, Roehl, Harris & Sisk, P.A. in Albuquerque, NM

Bond lawyer, father of two, third generation New Mexico lawyer, and loves how public finance helps local communities. Meet Daniel M. Alsup.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am a native New Mexican and third generation New Mexico lawyer. Having grown up in a small town, I enjoy assisting communities and school districts across the state with capital project financing as a bond lawyer. I like the fact that most of a public finance practice is cooperative and collaborative, in that while parties to a transaction have different interests and constraints, each party is working towards the common goal of closing. I enjoy spending time outside with my wife, Shoni, and our eight-year-old son and five-year-old daughter. I also enjoy making custom furniture and hunting.

What inspired you to join NABL?

When I first expressed interest in working in public finance, my mentor, Duane Brown, encouraged me to join NABL because of the excellent topical and networking resources it offers.

As a member since 2010, how have NABL’s resources contributed to the advancement of your career?

Since attending The Essentials conference in 2011, every NABL conference I’ve attended has been a great source of substantive education, as well as providing opportunities to meet and network with bond attorneys across the country. Additionally, NABL produces timely and relevant CLEs, resource materials and updates for members.

If you encounter someone in the industry who is not yet a member of NABL, how would you persuade them to join?

I would note that no other organization exists that provides the resource materials, networking opportunities and education for bond attorneys that NABL does.

What has been your top pick for a podcast, book, or TV show in the past year?

I tend to read and watch material unrelated to work. I’m currently enjoying reading “Continental Reckoning” by Elliot West and recently enjoyed “Peaky Blinders” on Netflix.
