How in the world did an entire year pass without me making any blog posts?
Answer: This past year has been very busy, handling a lot of different lawsuits and business matters for our law firm's clients. That is always good from a business perspective.
But that is not a good excuse for not having written anything useful on this blog for the past 13 months. I actually enjoy writing and I know that I can and will make time to write each week about issues affecting our clients and others that contact us asking for assistance.
So, in the next few months, I promise that I will write in Jeff's Corner about a lot of different topics that affect businesses and individuals in Texas, such as:
Of course, in a blog post, there is no way to cover every possible issue that may arise or that applies to an individual situation. That's what good attorneys are there for and I hope that you will use what I do write as a springboard to allow you to think about and discuss any applicable issues with your chosen attorneys. Nothing I write here can ever be taken as legal advice to you because you first have to have established an attorney-client relationship in order to receive any usable legal advice.
Mostly, my sincere hope is that I will be able to explain some of these complex legal issues that regularly arise in our day-to-day businesses and lives in an easy-to-understand way. Then you will be at least aware of the issues that may apply to your particular situation and you'll know the types of things to discuss with an attorney.
I hope that everyone has had a nice holidays so far and has a safe, fun New Year's. I am excited for what 2014 holds for everyone.
After what seems like forever, our law firm finally has a new website. Included in that design is a place we've called "Jeff's Corner," which will serve as my area to discuss things that I think are important for our clients. My goal for this Blog is to be a place to provide updates on significant issues that are occurring in areas of the law that affect our firm's clients. Whether it be statutory, regulatory, or court decisions - almost every week something significant seems to occur that affects people's rights, ways of doing business, or the procedures for defending oneself or enforcing rights.
Although I often get very busy I will make the effort to update the blog at least every couple of days. I will try to boil down technical, legal subjects into terms that we all can understand. If anything I write is unclear don't hesitate to write a comment or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to clarify.
