I love the fall. It’s probably my favorite season out of the whole year, and it’s finally in the air. School is back is session, and all of our little cherubs are falling back into their routines of attending classes, working their part-time jobs, doing homework, and studying for tests and exams. We have three children working on their college degrees (Tory in Charleston, Jay at Wofford, and Libby at Converse), and they are all making their ways toward officially declaring their majors and choosing a more focused path for their lives. Tristan and Elizabeth are both seniors in high school this year! Along with getting to know their way around the brand new (and huge ) Spartanburg High School campus, they are working hard on college applications, scholarship applications, and taking AP courses to hopefully reduce the number of first year college classes they will have to take. Elizabeth and I have even added a morning workout to our schedules to help jump-start our days (and improve our minds and bodies). High school football season is also in full swing, and both Tristan and Elizabeth are part of the SHS marching band, which means most Friday nights, when there’s a home game, you’ll find us at the stadium enjoying the game but also waiting for the band’s half- time performance.

Our youngest, Dexter, just started his fourth grade year and was excited to learn over the summer that he qualified for the Gifted and Talented program at his school. It’s such a joy to see him so excited about the opportunity to learn “extra” stuff during the school day. We pray he never loses that excitement for gaining new knowledge. But mostly, I just enjoy how after a busy, busy summer, with kids working (and playing) in what seemed like every direction, we finally can have a bit more structure to our weekly schedules. Even though everyone is busy with school, somehow for me, the weekends take on a more honored position during the week, and everyone seems drawn together to enjoy at least one family dinner together on the weekends possible. We’d love to hear from you about some of your favorite fall and/or back-to-school routines and traditions. Share them with us online via our Facebook page, or comment on our blog post with this newsletter edition. Happy fall! –Jenny Stevens

Reminder About Our Firm’s Communication Policy Our promise to you is that while we are working on your case, we don’t take inbound phone calls, faxes, or emails. Our Senior Partner, Ben Stevens, takes no unscheduled inbound phone calls, as we have found this makes him much more productive and enables him to focus on getting your case resolved faster. You can always call our office at (864) 598-9172 and schedule an in-person or phone appointment with any of our attorneys, usually within 24–48 hours. We believe this approach is much better than the endless game of phone tag played by most businesses today. Email is also an efficient way to communicate with us, but please

be advised that emails are not typically checked more than twice per day. If you need something quickly, don’t email — call our office and speak with one of our assistants, who will be happy to help you.
