For several years, I have written a recurring column for The Memphis Lawyer published by the Memphis Bar Association. I hope to continue to do for as long as they’ll still have me, but this site offers me an opportunity to offer thoughts in a more timely fashion and in more bite-sized offerings that will strive to tell you what you need to know in 6 minutes or fewer.
In addition to my recurring column in The Memphis Lawyer (back issues of which you can find and read here). I have had the privilege of publishing quite a few articles, book chapters, and other materials over the years:
