Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (8/25/2017)

Officially less than four months until full usage of #SoaringToNewHeitners and the wedding takes place — in Boca, Florida. It was quite an eventful week with a lot going on at Heitner Legal. Scored a big win in summary judgment for a corporate client that is thrilled with the result, especially since we also helped negotiate the contract that was in dispute. I have 2 fantasy football drafts this weekend, including the league that I run. We narrowed it down from 16 teams to 14 teams this year, still using a $500 buy-in. Those are my only 2 leagues, which I think is more than enough to focus on along with everything else going on in life.
