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.
