LOVS meets Ruth Bader Ginsburg; accepts award for Bar Section of Year

LOVS was truly fortunate to attend the Utah State Bar Summer Convention in beautiful Sun Valley, Idaho this July. 

Virginia Sudbury, who spearheaded the Limited Scope Section of the Bar, accepted the award for Bar Section of the Year on behalf of the Limited Scope Section! LOVS is proud to offer limited scope solutions for clients, and to contrite to educate lawyers, judges, commissioners, and clients about the benefits of limited scope work. 

Finally, Virginia, Elizabeth Hill-Bolling (paralegal extraordinaire), and Alison Satterlee (associate attorney) had the experience of a lifetime meeting Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg while at the Convention. Justice Ginsburg was an absolute delight as a speaker and incredibly gracious in person. 

Thank you to the Utah State Bar for an experience of a lifetime!

Oliver Sacks

Oliver sacks died today. This was something that we knew would happen; he told us so in his familiar matter-of-fact way last February. Still, it comes as a blow to to joy in the world. His insights and curiosity remind me to keep seeking that  "good and worthwhile life." Thank you, Dr Sacks, for your questions, your answers, and your reassurances.

"[N]ow, weak, short of breath, my once-firm muscles melted away by cancer, I find my thoughts, increasingly, not on the supernatural or spiritual, but on what is meant by living a good and worthwhile life — achieving a sense of peace within oneself. I find my thoughts drifting to the Sabbath, the day of rest, the seventh day of the week, and perhaps the seventh day of one's life as well, when one can feel that one's work is done, and one may, in good conscience, rest." ~Oliver Sacks.

Virginia Sudbury nominated for Family Law Lawyer of the Year

The Family Law Section of the Utah State Bar announced their nominations for Family Law Lawyer of the year and our beloved Virginia is up for the top honor, Lawyer of the Year! 

The award will be announced May 8th, 2015 at the Annual Family Law Seminar (which Virginia is also presenting at because she's a superstar.)

We at LOVS are so incredibly proud of Virginia and all of the work she does for clients, Utah, and for us, her grateful staff.

She would have never written this herself, let alone uttered it in public. This is what associate attorneys are for.
