this approach can ease your handling of the case and make life easier. Finally, cut each other some slack! Even if you have a legal position that is strong, if you can give the other side the break they request without putting your client to any disadvantage, it will pay off dramatically in the long run, and maybe even in the resolution of that particular case. Please take note of our newest Atlanta Bar staff members who have joined us in mid January – Terri Beck , who is going to take over from Diane O’Steen as our executive director come February 1, and Jessica Galusha , who will be taking over the reins as CLE director from retiring Mary Lynne McInnis . Both of these new folks have their work cut out for them but I have every confidence they will do a fine job helping us transition through the retirements of Diane and Mary Lynne. And, next time you see our new staff people, be sure to make them feel welcome to our bar family! ■ Connect with us now just click the icons below About the Cover: Shown on the cover are recipients of the Atlanta Bar Association Professionalism Award which is based on the following criteria: • Outstanding contributions to a program or activity which advances or promotes excellence, professionalism and public responsibility within the legal profession. • Outstanding writings or speeches which advance or promote the same. • Other outstanding contribution to the advancement or promotion of the same.
