Stamp of approval
Mr. Heatherly: I want to thank you and
all of the other people who have made
NWLawyer the great publication it is
today. I have been an attorney here in
Washington state for 14 years now and
it has been in about the last year or so
I have really noticed a difference in the
quality and relevance of this publication
to my life. I used to skim this publication more out of a sense of obligation or
curiosity, but now I really look forward
to receiving the publication and I read
most of the articles. I really enjoy the
Beyond the Bar No. feature and usually
enjoy your two cents. I like the fact that
this publication has gotten away from
technical legal articles. Not to say that
a technical legal article would not be a
good thing if a big case was decided or
something of consequence took place,
but on balance I like the fact that this
publication has moved away from this
direction as a general course. Having
people talk about what they have learned
from a legal perspective and how to live
life as an attorney, at least from my myopic perspective seems to serve me better
and I would think it would also serve the
bar in general better.

Thank you for the excellent June issue,
which contained a number of varied,
interesting, and informative articles.
I especially appreciated the articles
on addiction recovery, flat fees, and
sentence spacing. I disagree with the
analysis of the latter. If one can BlueBook, one can remember to space sentences consistently. Also, a more effective strategy than sentence spacing
for saving paper would be distributing
NWLawyer electronically — either optionally like the New Mexico Bar Bulletin or exclusively like the California
Bar Journal. Thank you.
