Dan Hull made a flattering comment about my blawg in his What About Clients, and I am thankful for his kind comment and the fact that he made it publicly. Dan was thoughtful to include a link to the Blawg Review Awards 2005 where In Search of Perfect Client Service was (based on one person's view) named Best Practice Management Blawg. While gratified that someone other than my mother thinks highly of my efforts, I've been exposed to too many gifted blawgers to think that my blawg is anything other than one good one among many terrific ones.
A number of people, through their inspiration, commentary, time, or just encouragement helped me in 2005. I owe them a great deal. While this list is no doubt incomplete, I do want to thank Dan Hull, Dennis Kennedy, Gerry Riskin, Larry Bodine, Matt Homann, Tom Kane, Michelle Golden, Monica Bay, The Wired GC and The Greatest American Lawyer. And a special note of thanks to Ernie the Attorney, who endured so much this year and so powerfully shared his experiences. My great thanks for your help and inspiration in 2005 and best wishes to all for a great 2006.
