Chair's Note

Dear Division Member:

Following is the first issue of GPSolo Law Trends & News for the 2010–2011 bar year. Following the past trend this is another exciting issue and, as Chair of the GPSolo Division, I am honored to be able to present it to you. Going along with the theme for this year, “Back to Basics,” this publication is designed to help simplify your practice. It includes articles, checklists, and other valuable practice information and practical tips.

With this issue, GPSolo Law Trends & News enters its seventh year of publication and being a member benefit. I hope you agree that with each edition, this publication provides meaningful articles for your practice and you. I encourage you to take just a few minutes to read the list of articles included below. As in the past you can either download specific articles relevant to your practice or you may download the entire newsletter by clicking the PDF PDFlink.

Included in this issue are portions of books which have recently been published by the Division—one about providing representation and counseling to small corporations, another about corporate real estate transactions, and another about the running of a profitable solo practice. These books not only address issues faced by solo and small firm attorneys, but also provide forms for the attorney to use. Click through the link and take a look at the topics addressed in these books. If you like what you see, you can immediately purchase the book(s).

Many Division members are integrally involved in putting this publication together. To them, I thank them for their hard work they do for the Division and for you, our members. Without the assistant editors’ hard work and dedication, this publication would not be possible. If you are interested in writing an article or participating in the production of the newsletter, please contact the editor of GPSolo Law Trends & News, Jim Schwartz at attyjls@aol.com.

As has occurred in the past, during this bar year, GPSolo Law Trends & News will continue as a quarterly publication. I hope you continue to find it as valuable a source of information as I do. As your Chair of the GPSolo Division, I also welcome your thoughts about this publication or anything else regarding our Division. Please feel free to share them with me. I can be reached at j.dewoskin@wbbdlaw.com.

Best regards,
Joseph DeWoskin
Chair, General Practice, Solo & Small Firm Division

Letter from the Editor

Dear Division Member:

I have been editor of GPSolo Law Trends & News since its founding. I normally do not send a message with the newsletter but I am doing it because of all of the books we have included in this issue. Our Publication Board finds excellent authors to write timely materials for you to use in your practice. I have chosen some portions for you to look at and determine if the book, itself, would be beneficial for your practice. If you do, please click through to the book itself and if you like what you see, purchase it. In the years that Law Trends has been in existence, we have strived to bring you timely and helpful articles and checklists—all to help you in your daily practice. I am proud of the quality of articles and tips given this year, and I hope you enjoyed them as well.

Very truly yours,

Jim Schwartz
