Shalom to everyone in Denver at the annual Sports Lawyers Association conference. It has been a few years since I attended the event, which is a great gathering of professionals and students interested in practicing Sports Law. Unfortunately, I'm not in attendance this year, but Heitner Legal does have some

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (5/12/2017)

This week, I celebrated two years of being in a relationship with the woman I currently consider my fiancee, who will ultimately become my wife in December. Unfortunately for her, the anniversary fell on the second day of a trial I was litigating, so the festivities have been suspended for

It's been a couple of weeks of non-stop travel, between Austin, Las Vegas and New York. Hopefully, I get to stay around home-base for the next few weeks before heading back to New York for some more Heitner Legal-related work.

Miraculously, I came back from Las Vegas a winner, and actually made a decent amount of money between betting on college basketball games (a lot of money won on the Gators) as well as poker. Was about even in blackjack. Today, I'm in Gainesville, where it is currently illegal to
