Better, I Hope

June 14, 2017 § 9 Comments

It was seven years ago today that I started my quest via this blog to influence as many lawyers as I could to be better chancery practitioners, to reach higher, to be more professional, and to be the best lawyers they could be.

It has been gratifying to run into lawyers and judges who tell me that they do draw inspiration and useful information, and even humor, from this blog. Mission accomplished as to them.

When it comes time to hang up my robe and turn this office over to my successor, I will have been a successful chancellor if I inspired the lawyers with whom I came in contact to improve their practices and become better … better lawyers, better people, better at all they do. If, on the other hand, those who crossed my path are no better or are worse, then I failed.

That’s why I’ll continue this for the time being. It’s a quest to influence people, particularly lawyers. Oh, and along the way it’s even helped me make some friends.

    Larry: As a fairly new Chancellor, I can say that I have been one of the benefactors of your great work. Proverbs says: Do not withhold good to whom it is due when it is in the power of your hand to do it. You’ve got it friend. Bob

    I read your blog religiously and use the “search” feature often before plugging a query into Westlaw. I thank you for the insight and research you have done covering so many different topics in the practice. These posts should be made into a book and given out to every 1L as real practice advice.

    Ditto on the making at least a long distance friend here. I don’t let one of your Blog Notes go unread. Thank you.

    Judge Primeaux I have had the pleasure to practice before you on one occasion and religiously read your blog. Your assistance to our profession is immeasurable!
    Keep up your good work

    Judge Primeaux –

    Mission accomplished! Your blog is THE go-to guide for chancery practice!

    In fact, I was at a Young Williams CLE last week in Jackson. Chancellor Gerald Martin was one of the speakers and he mentioned your blog. Several other speakers mentioned it as well.

    I really appreciate the fact that you take the time to blog. It is an easily accessible resource and (more importantly) it is free!!

    Keep up the great work!

    Thank you for the blog, Judge Primeaux. You have helped me more than you will ever know. Although I’ve never appeared before you, your words to the wise have saved me several times. My practice is pretty much confined to the Eighth and Tenth Chancery court districts but I hope to meet you one day.
