As I sit here with family on this Thanksgiving Day 2015,  I have much to be thankful for.  I have a thriving construction law practice, great clients, wonderful friends and of course the best, most supportive family a guy could ask for.  I also have some great readers and guest post contributors that make this corner of the “blawgosphere” (if that’s even a word anymore) a more interesting place.
