Hi Gang, Did you miss me. (I have no idea why Blogger is ignoring my paragraphs. I'll clean it up when I get the chance, or maybe our friendly webmaster can do it.)

I haven't written in the blog for a couple months. As many of you AFSCME 3357 members are aware, I was one of the January layoffs from UAW Legal Services Plan as part of its winding down of operations. Not to be ungrateful for 16 years of employment, but I welcomed the chance to do something different, and I set off to re-enter the world of private law practice. In doing so, I am retreading ground that I trod twenty-three years ago, when I began my first law practice. Let me tell you, it is really weird, being a generation older and restarting a law practice from scratch. Since many of you AFSCME 3357 members are either taking the same path or will in the near future, I thought I'd pass on lessons that I learned, things that went right and things that went not so right. In our private area, I've put up a rough draft to help you get going. I hope to clean it up, make it more generally applicable and put it up for public viewing so anyone starting a solo law practice will find it useful. The catch is that I'm pretty busy so, I may not get to it; or if I get to it it might be after you need the info, so I'm going ahead and throwing out my rough info on the private site. If you want something better, come back and check to see if I updated it. It's after 11:00 PM now, so this is the best that I can give you for the moment.
