This is not just the first blog post for my law firm, this is the first blog post I have ever written. So, please bear with me if I fail to follow some norm that I am unfamiliar with.
Frank Spinner (of counsel) and I (attorney Richard Stevens) have represented clients deployed to the Middle East who were serving our country in combat operations in the “global war on terror.” Seeing what these clients and their colleagues do, first hand, is a stark reminder of the courage and sacrifice required of, and displayed by, our brave men and women in the military.
Our experiences in the Middle East, and our interactions and relationships with members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines & Coast Guard at home and abroad, provide us with daily inspiration to do what we do. Frank and I are former military members. Our law practices exclusively represent military members. Our military defense practices, and this particular blog post, are our small way to thank and support all of our military members who contribute so much to who we are as a nation.
So, to all of you now serving in the military, and to all of those who have served in the past, thank you for the safety you provide us, for the ideals you embody and defend, and for the strength and integrity you project to the world. And, that same “thank you” is extended to your family members who give you the strength and support necessary so you can serve us all. We are forever grateful for what you do!
