I finally got to read the article in this months ABA Journal about lawyers who go out on their own, and the lawyer most prominently featured is none other than one of my best friends, Erik Heels.
Congrats to Erik on the coverage, but more importantly, congrats are due for his success. If you need an IP lawyer, you need to talk to Erik. Period. Hes prolific columnist, and hes got a great sense of humor to boot.
One of the things that doesnt explicitly get mentioned in the article is Eriks discipline; you get a sense of it in reading the article but I think its a key to his success. Not>Greg Siskind. Both Erik and Greg took paths that at the time seemed non-obvious. And both have succeeded, without sacrificing their families or their happiness. [tins ::: Rick Klau's weblog]
