As a private attorney, Michael Vereen has been assisting clients in various types of cases since 1988. He mainly focuses on bankruptcy cases, DUI cases, and criminal law. Outside of his professional life, Michael Vereen works with his children as he trains and coaches them on how to kayak.

Kayaking is a sport that comes with many different health benefits, including improving how much Vitamin D an individual is getting. Since kayaking takes place outdoors and the kayak does not provide shade, individuals naturally get plenty of sunshine, and thus increase their Vitamin D intake. However, those who practice the sport need to be careful not to burn.

Kayaking is also excellent for building the strength of the upper body, since the individual is seated and must continually use the double paddle in order to keep going. This requires having pulled-in abdominal muscles while using upper body strength to constantly paddle. As a result, the core of the body becomes more muscular and developed.
