Editor’s Comment: The Gold Standard – By Sarah Roland

/

The gold standard—the absolute best, the benchmark, the epitome of perfection. It’s what many of us aspire to be professionally and what few actually achieve. Buck Files is no doubt the gold standard among us. He has been a consistent and quality contributor to The Voice for 30 years. In this regard, his contribution to TCDLA is unparalleled. TCDLA is fortunate to have had Buck on its team for all these years. There is no sign of him slowing down, either! 

As a small token of thanks for all that Buck has done for The Voice, we honor him and his contributions in this issue, which features his 200th article. Please enjoy the articles written by some of the lawyers who have known Buck the best throughout the years. When you see him around, stop and tell him thanks for all that he has done for all of us. Let’s continue to learn from him. And let’s use Buck as an inspiration to put pen to paper or fingers to keys and write that article for The Voice that’s been lingering in your mind.
