Thanks Be

Giving thanks

Professionally, what am I thankful for?

  • I’m thankful for experience and a skill set useful in terrible economic times.
  • I’m thankful for bankruptcy laws, flawed as they are, that allow people to escape debt and focus on the future.
  • I’m thankful for an honest judiciary and panel trustee system that give the system integrity.

On a less lofty note, I’m thankful for computers and the internet, which make it possible to represent individuals without carbon paper, adding machines,trips to the clerk’s office and stacks of books in a library.

I’m thankful for a wonderful set of bankruptcy lawyers I count as friends and partners, who share generously and stretch my thinking.

And, I’m thankful that there is another generation of rookie bankruptcy lawyers coming behind meĀ  striving to do the same challenging and important work well in the future.
