And like many teenagers of any era, music was my life. But in the early ‘90s, something changed. Music as I knew it was turned on its head as grunge moved out of Seattle and swept across the country. I was listening to everything from Nirvana to Pearl Jam. But of all the bands that defined the grunge movement, it was Pearl Jam that had the biggest impact on me. I loved their music, and I was constantly listening to their albums. The band was just one of those things that spoke to me as a teenager. As I got a little older, I graduated from listening to albums in my room to going to concerts. That grew into another passion of mine: seeing my favorite musicians live in concert. It’s just always such an amazing experience to see talented people doing what they do on a stage. It’s like seeing wrestling in person, which I’ve talked about in the past. There is something surreal about it, and of course, it’s always a lot of fun. In college, my friends and I would see Pearl Jam in concert whenever they were touring through the Midwest. If we could make it work, we would be there. Once I moved to Florida, it was a little harder to see Pearl Jam on tour as frequently, but I still got a few concerts in. At last count, I’ve seen Pearl Jam in concert 18 times in 8 different states. This year marks Pearl Jam’s 30th anniversary, and they released a new album, their 11th, entitled “Gigaton.” The album dropped in March, right in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, and I’ve been listening to it on repeat ever since.
Over the past few months, as we’ve practiced social distancing, I’ve been alone in my office. It’s given me time to really reflect. I’ve been thinking about my 16 years as a sole practitioner, and my clients who continue to call me after all these years. I still have clients reaching out to me who first hired me 16 years ago. Sometimes they call me with a new case, sometimes they call me with a referral, and sometimes they just call to check in. It struck me how faithful they are. On top of that, my law firm has over 85 five-star reviews on Google. These reviews come from a variety of sources, including clients who hired me once, clients who have retained my services, and people who just called me for advice. I appreciate the time they took to leave a review. That’s remarkable to me, but it tells me that I must be doing something right. Going forward, I’ve decided to call our monthly review section “ Messages From the Faithful .” I think that really captures the spirit of these reviews. As I wrap up for this month, I want to thank my faithful for sticking with me throughout the years. Along with my longtime faithful clients, I want to thank my newer clients who more recently discovered us. Please know, that no matter what is going on in Florida, or in the world at large, I’m here to serve each and every one of you.
I bring up Pearl Jam this month not just because I want to share my appreciation of the band, but to likewise share my appreciation of my clients! What do I mean by that? Pearl Jam fans are referred to as “ The Faithful ,” in reference to their song, “ Faithfull .” Similarly, many of my clients represent my “ faithful .”
