Upon my arrival at our State Bar of Georgia Board of Governors meeting at Jekyll Island, a staff member handed me the traditional name tag with various colorful ribbons hanging off the bottom signifying offices, honors, etc. I’ve always felt those made me look like an admiral of the navy of a small, landlocked dictatorship.  Back in my room after dinner I removed all the ribbons.  My name and one word, “president,” is quite sufficient.

A few more figurative ribbons arrived in recent weeks. For whatever they may be worth, if anything:

  • “Super Lawyer” in Atlanta Magazine again for the 8th year in a row.
  • “Who’s Who in Law” in Atlanta Business Chronicle
  • Nominated for “Top 25” tort law blogs

All that plus $1.75 will get you a cup of coffee. Back to work.
