It is Wednesday evening, and as I write this blog post, the ballots in our presidential and some Senate races are still being counted or re-counted and lawsuits have been filed and more threatened.  But do not worry, this blog post is not about that voting.  Instead, it is about a voting consensus that has already been reached: the 2021 Best Lawyers.  The attorneys at the Law Offices of John Day won big again this year so, of course, we want to share that good news with you, explain the process and why it is important, and give you a quick checklist of things you should look for should you ever need to hire an attorney.

Around our house, for quite a while, we have been using the euphemism “With everything that has been going on . . . ”    We like it because it gathers up the collective burdens and tribulations surrounding CoVid 19 and tries to make it more palatable especially around a 12 year-old, who certainly does not need nor want to hear much more than that.  So even with everything that is going on, we have some smiles, encouragement and tips to help you get through this slog.

This is hard.  I don’t even have to explain what I am talking about.  Everyone of us knows – all too well.  Watching the news can make it harder with statistics on confirmed cases, economic fallout, dire predictions, etc.   Scrolling through social media, it is easy to find doomsday rumors, finger-pointing and crazy conspiracy theories.  So we wanted to try and help be the antidote to all that bad news and noise and join the ranks of those who are trying to make people smile and feel better.  We want to remind people that as Tennesseans we are strong and resilient and this too shall pass.  So here is your mid-week boost.
