Here is some great news from the State Bar of Arizona (if we do say so ourselves!). We are pleased to report that some magazine staff (yes, me too) were recognized in a few national awards for terrific work related to Arizona Attorney Magazine.

As you’ll see below, this blog was recognized; thank you to all the readers, especially those who have commented, critiqued and sent me suggestions about blog posts.

Thank you and congratulations to my colleagues Karen Holub and Michael Peel, who routinely generate superior work that I would put up against that of most any magazine.
