Letter from the President
Good Lawyers Doing Good
By John P. Aldrich, Esq.
This month’s edition of the Communiqué focuses on tech law. I hope you will take the time to learn about these important issues and how they may affect your practice.
As you may have noticed, this year I have dedicated a portion of my columns to the segment called “Good Lawyers Doing Good.” One of our authors this month (and our October luncheon speaker), is Lawrence Epstein. Lawrence is currently the Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Ultimate Fighting Championship®. During the early years of my career, I had the pleasure of working under Lawrence while I was an associate at Beckley Singleton. Lawrence was a valuable mentor to me, and I will always appreciate the guidance that Lawrence gave me. I have continued to implement many of the lessons I learned from Lawrence in my now almost two decades of practice. Lawrence gave me just the right amount of direction, but also allowed me to handle my cases and learn and grow. He also was adamant about giving credit where credit was due. Any time any of the attorneys we worked with did a good job, Lawrence was quick to point it out. As a young attorney, I appreciated receiving praise from my supervisor and it helped build my confidence. It is no surprise that Lawrence continues to be a great leader.
