Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden chose California Sen. Kamala Harris as his vice presidential running mate on Tuesday, meaning her husband, Douglas Emhoff, could be the nation’s first Second Gentleman. Following the announcement, Emhoff tweeted a photo of Harris and Biden with the caption “America, let’s do this!”

Emhoff, 55, a lawyer, has been a partner at the DLA Piper international law firm since 2017. He has 25 years of experience in the legal field and obtained his law degree from the University of Southern California Gould School of Law in 1990. 

Emhoff is licensed to practice in both California and Washington, D.C., and is specialized in entertainment law. According to DLA Piper’s website, Emhoff has represented “rights holders of a famous animated character in copyright and trademark disputes across the globe” and “defended a studio executive in a lawsuit alleging breach of contract and fraud relating to a blockbuster film,” among other accomplishments.

Emhoff is an avid supporter of his wife and met Harris on a blind date in 2013. Emhoff and Harris wed the following year in a Santa Barbara courthouse. Emhoff has two children, Cole and Ella, from his previous marriage. Harris has called her two stepchildren “my endless source of love and pure joy” in a 2019 article for Elle magazine.

Emhoff has protected Harris during public appearances. In June 2019, a protester grabbed Harris’ mic on stage during the MoveOn Big Ideas forum in California, with Emhoff escorting the man off stage.

The Los Angeles Times reported last year that Harris and Emhoff had between $1.5 million and $4 million in combined assets in 2015. Tax returns from 2015 reveal the couple gave $32,947 to non-profits such as UNICEF.
