Back in the Saddle

Whew, whirlwind month! My law partner withdrew from the partnership to seek different pastures. Had to change everything over to Letourneau Law. Hired another, seasoned, legal assistant. Have an associate starting in August. Work has started coming into our firm like crazy. It's really hard to keep up, thus why we need more help.

Also tried to take a few days off to spend with my family. It was really hard. There is a lot of benefit to having other lawyers in your firm for those times when you need to get away. I guess you could just put up a "gone fishing" sign, but clients don't seem to appreciate your need to go fishing.

I have nothing to complain about. Business is fantastic. I am really enjoying my work. I still have a pretty balanced life. Actually, it is really balanced compared to my colleagues who are working at Big-Law.
