A few weeks ago, Sam Glover of Lawyerist fame asked me to write about my transition to solo practice after 13 years in government and private practice. I was of course happy to oblige. I first wanted to talk about the xarelto side lawsuit which is effecting so many people. I enjoyed reminiscing in writing, and I hope that you will like my thoughts. Here’s a taste:

I didn’t even have a particular area, aside from “civil” in mind.
