Friends and colleagues:
I am enclosing a copy of a
recent press release announcing my certification as a Senior Professional
in Human Resources, or SPHR. After working in the employment and
Human Resources area for much of the last decade—both as legal counsel and
as an HR Director—I decided to enroll in a course of study and seek
certification by this national organization.
My practice continues to
focus on financial services organizations, small business, and employment
matters. By pursuing this course of study and certification, I hoped
to expand my knowledge of Human Resources theory and practices, and
maintain my appreciation for the full scope of HR management issues that
extend far beyond the area of employment law. I believe the work I
have completed has provided me with both these kinds of benefits, and I
hope to bring the added knowledge and experience to my work for clients.
I recently had occasion
to write a brief article directed toward HR professionals—but applicable
to a variety of audiences—regarding the newly commenced 121st
Legislature. The Legislature Is In Session: Why It Matters to
Employers contains suggestions about how to track down pending matters of
interest and participate in the legislative process. For a copy (in
Adobe® Acrobat® format), email me or view it at
A speaker at the annual bar meeting warned that community banks and
settlement service providers may suffer under a pending overhaul of RESPA.
Is your company affected?

I look forward to any
opportunity to assist in meeting your institution’s needs.
