The Conversation Continues…
Over the last several years, the FLEXCOM Chairs, our authors, award recipients, and I have discussed the value of service with our readers â service to your clients, service to family law, service to law students, and service to new attorneys. The call was made for your involvement as volunteers, as mentors, and as philanthropists. Notwithstanding our volunteers who have graciously written for our readers, the conversation has somewhat stopped in the last few issues with no feedback from our readers letting us know what, if anything, they may have started or continued doing as service to our area of the law in order to inspire others to action.
Last issue, you read about the prestigious awards bestowed upon many of our family law practitioners, judges, and court staff for their dedication and contribution. In this issue, the first in 2015, two of our authors and our Chair of FLEXCOM, have once again started the important conversation about service and I hope you will join in and continue the conversation. We hope to inspire and provoke thought about the ways in which we can serve our family law clients, colleagues, and our courts to be more efficient and productive toward resolutions that are less adversarial or combative and more cooperative. Read these articles and share your thoughts with our authors or with me to motivate us to take further action â Service is at the Heart of What We Do by FLEXCOM Chair, Raymond Goldstein; We Can Make a Difference by The Honorable Judge Jaime R. Roman; Practicing Law: The Lost Guide by Christopher C. Melcher.
