Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (12/1/2017)

Well we have finally made it to the month of December. 22 days until I get married and a month until I go to South Africa for my honeymoon. Business is booming at Heitner Legal, with many cases settling to the delight of clients and with the firm picking up a lot of new clients in its Family Law division that was created roughly a year ago. I’m headed to Montego Bay, Jamaica this Thursday-Sunday and hopefully my ankle is healed enough from a basketball injury to hit a few golf courses while I’m out there. I am going to make it my New Year’s Resolution to finally take golf lessons and become better at the game. Seems attainable. Happy to have a new coach in Gainesville and Dan Mullen has my full support!
