As I put pen to paper, it is a cold January day. The saving grace is that I know in just a few days we will be sailing the ocean blue with so many of my favorite people in the universe on my TCDLA President’s Cruise! We will have great CLE, beautiful beaches, and incredible fun!
To make today even better, I attended a 7:00 a.m. Navarro College Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast. The keynote speaker was none other than our former board member Audrey Moorehead! Audrey now serves as a Dallas County Criminal Court Judge, and she was as amazing as ever. She reminded everyone about the complete relevance of MLK even today and implored them to be a part of civic responsibility—vote, give back, be your best! An incredible (and of course hilarious) presentation from an even more incredible woman!
Speaking of Navarro College—everyone is already obsessed with our junior college of late, thanks to Netflix’s “Cheer” series about the Navarro College cheer program. If you have haven’t watched it—DO! You all know how much I love to share my hometown with everyone, and this is a great example of good things happening in smallish towns across our country!
TCDLA has some extremely good CLE in the near future! DON’T MISS IT! Our Criminal Defense Lawyers Project Chair Laurie Key has forced us to suffer through CLE at the Lajitas Golf Resort on February 28 so we can spend time with our incredible West Texas lawyers. Should be so much fun and educational as well. Then Anatomy of a Trial will be in Austin March 5th & 6th. This is going to be so very good: Our course directors are Betty Blackwell and Clay Steadman, and NOTHING they do is less than stellar! Check out the agenda on our website and make plans to be there.
I’m thankful for each of you, and I can promise I am ready for spring. Keep fighting the good fight! You are a blessing to me, to your clients, and to each other.
