A Day in the Life of a Lawyer

Contrary to what’s depicted in legal dramas and movies, it’s actually not that interesting… Or is it? I wake up, brush my teeth, shower, and shave. I pick out a suit, dress shirt, and appropriate necktie, and do my best to match my shoes with my belt. The only difference to that routine is that…

COVID-19 Update: Vaccinations

On May 4, 2021, President Biden announced a new goal to at least partly vaccinate 70 percent of adults by Independence Day, recognizing the apparent vaccine hesitancy in many communities. Most of those who are eligible have already received at least one dose of a vaccine. As of May 5, 2021, the CDC reports that over 148…
