Homeward Bound -- Kind of

As many of you know, my friend and and DWI lawyer extraordinaire, Tyler Flood and I recently started a law partnership up in Bryan/College Station.

I grew up in Bryan and spent two and a half years working at the Brazos County District Attorney's Office when I was going to Texas A&M.  I also spent a few months working at the Brazos County Attorney's Office while I was waiting on my Bar Results.  It is hard to believe that was 12 years ago.

We've been doing a case or two here and there over the past year, but I look very forward to getting back by my hometown more often.  It is always good to go back and visit old friends.

You can check out our website here and on Facebook by clicking here.

Congrats, Murray. It is good to see you doing so well. Now, what the heck is happening at CJC?

Bogar run out.
Shreya left.
Loper left.
Lamendola left.
Layne moved on to greener pastures (pun intended).
More test takers since 2008.

Apparently, intake has been cut once again. The office is looking leaner than Christian Bale in "The Machinist."

My work load is overwhelming. I have less discretion than ever. I cannot understand anyone running any of us off. It is amazing that some of the leadership that is from the pre-Lykos era would engage in that kind of behavior. Instead of wasting your time dealing with the "petty" personality conflicts, how about you help me with my docket. You know who you are. We are drowning in work if you haven't noticed.

Mr. Newman. Congrats. I was wondering if Mr. Flood compromised on having your name first in exchange for him being taller than you in the website photo?

That was the exact deal we had and you have no idea how much hair product Tyler had to use to get himself taller.

Congrats, Murray! I know that it will be great transition, a long process and when it's all said and done you may just find that what happens here at CJC is just not worth pain in the a**. The money may be better here, but what price do you put on your sanity?

Petty little "sissies".

One winter day a rancher found a rattlesnake coiled under a rock unable to move because of the severe cold.
Impressed with it's superficial appearance he brought the snake home to show his family--thinking what a fine family pet it would make!
As the snake warmed by the hearth it's mobility returned and it slithered through the rancher's home biting the entire family as they slept.

MORAL: Don't blame the snake for doing what snakes naturally do; blame the rancher for bringing the serpent of death into his home.

Murray, as a writer, there's only one thing that bothers me about the website. It's when Tyler is described as trying "predominately 100% DWIs." Predominately means mostly. 100% means all. Saying mostly all doesn't make any sense. I don't expect you to post this comment, but I just wanted to bring that to your attention. That phrase just sounds bad to an educated person. It made my husband, who is a wordsmith, cringe too! Otherwise, nice website.

Thanks for the tip! I'm an Aggie and need all the help I can get! I mangle words and sentences on a regular basis. At least predominantly.
