You may have noticed the lack of blog posts these lasts months, and that is because I have been hard at work on developing a new blog for lawyers called “Attorney With A Life.”
Attorney With A Life (AWAL) brings together a varied group of contributors from across North America all writing about tips, ideas, and strategies for navigating your way to a rewarding and fulfilling life as a legal professional (which let’s face it – is pretty hard to do these days.)
The site launched this week and you can find it here: http://www.attorneywithalife.com

I will soon have the URL lawyerwithalife.ca up and running and it will link to the same AWAL content but provide a more Canadian-friendly point of entry, should you prefer that.
