Wow. 2011 has come and very nearly gone. That’s the cycle of life, we suppose. But we must pause to confess that we here at Abnormal Use and Gallivan, White & Boyd, P.A. have had one heck of a year. On the blog front, we hit 500 posts. We were named by the ABA Journal to this year’s ABA Blawg 100 and also named one of the Top 25 Torts Blogs by the LexisNexis Litigation Resource Community. We were cited by The New York Times, Scientific American, and National Public Radio. We caused a stir with our many (some say too many) posts on the infamous Stella Liebeck McDonald’s hot coffee case. And, as per usual, we interviewed a whole host of law professors, practitioners, and pop culture celebs.
On the law firm front, it was also a significant year with many big changes. We began 2011 as a law firm with a single office in Greenville, South Carolina. We end 2011 as a larger, more regional firm with three offices in two states. This past spring, we opened an office in Charlotte, North Carolina. Then, just a few months later, we opened an office in Columbia, South Carolina, just a stone’s throw from the state capitol building.
So, as you can see, it’s been quite a year for us here, both at the blog and within the firm.
Here’s hoping that 2012 is just as exciting.
