As we come to the end of 2018, I hope it was a good year for you and that you've set yourself up well to start strong in the new year.

Looking back at this past year, it was a good one for me.

On the immigration side of my practice, I continued to place an emphasis on na...

"After Latin, it seems to me there is no language so fitted for prayer and for talk about God as Spanish: for it is a language at once strong and supple, it has its sharpness, it has the quality of steel in it, which gives it the accuracy that true mysticism needs, and...

Just as I rely on the important work of coworkers, including paralegals and administrative staff, around me, so do doctors rely upon and need the important work of nurses around them.

To those of you who are Christians and to those of you who celebrate at a purely secular level: I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas!

I went to high school with Jeff Selby, the lead singer of The Quixote Project.  I'm really proud of the work he's done as a musician.

People all over the world should have the right to peaceful protest.

Provided it is peaceful, a people should be allowed to express itself in a public, visible way.

Outside of elections, it's the best form for people to express themselves in a democracy.

Expression is a f...

I read this heart wrenching article today about the sentencing of a man who shot a teenager in the head in an incident of road rage.  At the end of the article, which I urge you to read in full, is the teenager's father's victim impact statement to the judge.
