Letter From the Editor
By Henry S. David
Henry S. David is the proprietor of The David Firm®, which he founded after 33 years in Big Law. He is a commercial litigator, with a focus on creditors’ rights.
I have had the honor of writing these Letters from the Editor-in-Chief for nearly two years now. This time, I am particularly honored and humbled to do so because when my practice severely limited my ability to actively manage the process of getting this Issue out, my fellow Editors and my colleagues on the Executive Committee jumped in and got it done. It reminded me of the challenges – and the rewards – of being a Solo or Small Firm attorney: Knowing that your community is ready to help at a minute’s notice when you are overwhelmed with responsibilities to your clients. Taking the risk that Oscar winners take in their acceptance speeches (offending someone by omission), I want to particularly thank Megan Zavieh, our current Vice Chair, who, de facto, is this Issue’s Editor-in-Chief, and Jeremy Evans, who wrote two pieces, including a "must read" article about things to do when you attend the Solo and Small Firm Summit from June 16 to 18, 2016, in Newport Beach. (You are attending the Summit, aren’t you? It is a great source of top-notch MCLE and an even greater networking opportunity.)
