DRI in DC

“If you are resolutely determined to make a lawyer of yourself, the thing is more than half done already.” Abraham Lincoln, 1855

Over the last week, members of our firm attended the DRI Annual Meeting held in Washington, D.C. This was my first DRI event, with the fortunate exception of being a guest at a reception in San Diego a few years ago (held on the deck of the USS Midway!) The experience was inspiring, enlightening, and a whole lot of fun!
