Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (1/14/2011)

I heard that two days ago Florida was the only state in the United States to not have fresh snow on the ground.  I sure hope Florida schools are selling that to their recruits.  Cancelling school for Snow Days is fun, but it’s not fun when in slightly better conditions you have to trudge through the snow to get to class.  Next week I will be taking the test to become admitted to practice in the Southern District of Florida.  This will allow me to work on state and federal cases.  I will be on West Palm Beach CBS’ Beyond the Game again this Saturday.  Watch it when it airs at 7:30 p.m. or be sure to catch it when I link to it on all of my social sites next week.  We did a slight re-design this week.  Not too much has changed; hope you like it.  Should have some new announcements soon regarding a new partnership regarding this site and a new deal for a Dynasty client.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:

Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel.
