Does the other love of your life, your dog Copper, get a say in who you end up selecting this season on The Bachelorette?
RL: Absolutely. If you’re going to accept me, you’re going to have to be able to accept Copper. But he also has to be able to accept you. So a huge red flag would be if Copper did not like you.

Favorite scary movie.
RL: I love scary movies. It is my joy when a new scary movie comes out. I have to see it. I even watch the terrible ones that are on Netflix. My favorite scary movie? There’s only one time where I screamed out loud in a movie theater and that was watching The Ring. When she came through that TV…I’d never seen anything like that before, so that would probably be one of my favorites.

Do you keep in touch with any of the ladies from your time on The Bachelor?
RL: Yes. I have my group that I like to call The Squad. We are very, very close. My squad is Astrid, Alexis, Raven, Kristina and Whitney. I’m also very close with Jasmine and Corinne.

What kind of law do you practice currently and do you have other avenues of law you would like to pursue?
RL: My background is sports law, that’s what I went to law school to specialize in but I am currently a trial attorney that specializes in civil defense litigation. I work in a variety of expertise, from business and commercial litigation to personal injury and premises liability. My firm represents businesses and organizations in whatever aspects they get sued. I wanted to be a trial attorney because I wanted to learn a number of expertise as far as the law is concerned, so I could spread my wings and learn everything I could. And because sports law is my background I will eventually probably move back into sports law.

Final question: Which is more difficult, law school or dating?
RL: Definitely dating [laughs].
