Something here about Paul’s bona fides in the practice of law.  Maybe publications, lectures, etc.?

Industry Recognition

Insert something here… perhaps highlight something from the accordion section on Past Memberships & Recognitions, below?

In her own words…

Some personal statement here.  Topics might include a statement about:

  • how you’ve enjoyed the journey through your legal profession so far
  • how you’ve enjoyed the relationships you’ve had with clients over the years

The idea is that this section, in contrast to the rest of the bio, is particularly personal, with a warm tone to it.
