Fleet of Floating Vehicles and Food From the Grill Summer at the Lake

At the office this season, we’re staying busy and working hard with our great team of attorneys. One big effort we’ve been focusing on is educating other professionals about what disability law is and how it can help clients who think they are out of options. I recently gave a presentation at the Texas Trial Lawyers Association and shared some of my knowledge with my colleagues. When people ask what I do for a living, I share a case I worked on some time ago for a client named Mike. The case demonstrates the importance of disability law and how we can benefit from more awareness about it. It opens up possibilities for people who think they are out of options, like Mike. If you’d like to read more about Mike the Mechanic, take a look at his story on Page 2. Finally, thank you to all of our scholarship applicants. It was incredible to learn about the dedicated, hardworking students who applied — there are some talented folks out there! We’ve received so many excellent applications that it has been difficult to narrow it down to only two people. We will make our selection and share the news with you soon. Enjoy your summer, and maybe we’ll see you at the lake. -Marc Whitehead

For my family, summertime means trying to spend as much time at the lake as possible. We have a house on Lake Livingston, and when it comes time to plan a summer vacation, I’m always rooting for a staycation, because you can’t really beat summer at the lake. Since my girls were little, we’ve made going to the lake a family ritual. We splash around in the lake and enjoy biking in the neighborhood. I have the makings of a fleet of floating vehicles — a power boat, jet skis, and, newest to the collection, a sailboat that I’m still trying to learn to sail. It’s a work in progress, so I’ll let you know if I get the hang of it by the end of the summer. We also have a nice outdoor grill, and I enjoy grilling meals on it, but my favorite might be grilling on our outdoor griddle. I’ll make breakfast outside with

This year, our group may be a little smaller. My daughter, who is in college for speech therapy, will spend her summer as an intern, working with children with speech impediments. She will be busy helping others and pursuing her career. Two of my other girls are going to camps, so at least for a couple of weekends, it may just be my wife and me at the lake house, taking in the scenery and the calm found in the outdoors. One of the great things about Texas is the decent weather year-round. We often go to the lake even in winter. We may not get in the water, but we still find plenty to do. When fall comes and it starts to get dark earlier, we sit outside around the firepit, talking into the night.
