Some of you have looked at the upper right-hand corner of this blog and noticed that our firm name has changed to Law Offices of John Day P.C. Those of you on our announcement list received a more formal notice last week.
What’s going on? John Branham, the gentleman I started the firm with in 1993, turned 65 last fall and decided to leave the firm at the end of the year. Rebecca Blair, who has been a shareholder of the firm for several years, has now became a name partner in the firm.
We are in the same location, have the same phone number and, with a couple of exceptions, the same personnel we had four months ago. Regrettably, we are losing a lawyer in a couple days. Jimmy Streett, who clerked with us as a rising third-year student and has been with us since his graduation from Vanderbilt two years ago, is moving home to Arkansas to take over his father’s law practice. Jimmy has done a very good job for our clients and we will miss him.
So, we have a new name, a new logo, a new website and a new slogan – Helping Our Peers Help Their Clients. The slogan signifies what we do – make ourselves available to lawyers who have conflicts or for one reason or another would like to associate us in a civil litigation matter. We also try to help our peers through our extensive speaking and writing efforts (including this blog) and my work on Capitol Hill.
I am confident that the next 14 years will be as fun and rewarding as the last 14.
