NEWS FROM THE DESK: March 2019

By March 12, 2019 March 4th, 2020 No Comments

It’s March! It seems hard to believe that St. Patrick’s Day is already around the corner. With spring come thoughts of renewing and refreshing our lives—let us help you by getting your estate planning or business needs in order!

On March 2, my virtual law firm team members, along with spouses, significant others and friends, came to my house for a home cooked Indian meal! You might be impressed if I had cooked it, but I can’t take credit. Instead, I successfully bid on this meal at the Tennis Outreach Program’s annual Auction last October. We had a great time eating fabulous food and catching up, as you can see from these pictures!

I presented a continuing legal education course for the Washington State Bar Association’s Readmission Program on Social Media and Your Law Practice with Jeanne Marie Clavere on March 7. Our presentation focused on the Rules of Professional Conduct, and the ethical boundaries of attorneys’ participation in social media.  Sherry and I present on various topics throughout the year; check out firm’s Presentations list for upcoming events.

I’m looking forward to meeting fellow neighborhood business owners while honing my Warrior 1 Pose! I’ll be attending the Phinney Neighborhood Association’s (PNA) Business Member Yoga and Breakfast at The Grinning Yogi on March 20. The PNA is a fantastic resource for local businesses, and I’m proud to have been a member of the business group since its inception.
