    Nobody does it better,

    Makes me feel sad for the rest,

    Nobody does it half as good as you.

    Baby, you’re the best…

    Law Practice Magazine published by the American Bar Association, Law Practice Management Section, received three awards this summer: A 2007 APEX Award for Creative Director Mark Feldman for cover design of the April/May 2006 issue, another 2007 APEX Award in the writing category for Bill Gibson’s terrific “Ask Bill” column, and a 2007 Tabbie Award for cover design, again for the April/May 2006 cover. The APEX Awards are based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content and ability to achieve overall communications excellence. The Tabbies recognize excellence in trade, association and business publications. Credit has to go to former Law Practice Magazine Editor-in-Chief Merrilyn Astin Tarlton, who led the team to excellence at the time these awards were earned!

    Dan Pinnington (Director, PracticePro) recently received The Edge Award for the Best Column in Law Practice Magazine for 2007, entitled: I’m Not Here Right Now, Please Leave a Message (Tips and Tricks), in the April-May 2007 issue. Congratulations to Dan for an excellent column! Speaking of Dan, he was just inducted into the College of Law Practice Management. Edge International is a leader in firm strategy and management.

    Congratulations are also due to all the 2006-2007 Edge Award winners—announced on page 5 of the September 2007 issue—for writing excellence in Law Practice magazine. They are: Best Feature Article: Steven T. Taylor “Rainmaking: Rewriting the Rules” in the October/November 2006 issue; Silver Feature Article: Peter Darling, “Seeking Out New Markets” in the September 2006 issue and of course, Best Column: Dan Pinnington, “I’m Not Here Right Now, Please Leave a Message”, from the Tips and Tricks column of April/May 2007.

    It is gratifying that a magazine devoted to the topic of the business of the practice of law receives such recognition. Oh, and I am proud to be the current Editor-in-Chief and grateful to be working with such a talented team of professionals – the Editorial Team (Joan Feldman – Managing Editor, Joy White – Editor, Mark Feldman – Creative Director), the Editorial Board (Laura A. Calloway – Finance Editor, Marcia Pennington Shannon – People Editor, and Mark Tamminga – Technology Editor), the Editorial Advisory Board (Edward H.Flitton III, Ann Lee Gibson, K. William Gibson, Erik J. Heels, Karen MacKay, Reba J. Nance, and Doona L.G. Shaft), the talented writers, ABA Staff and all others who contribute to the success of Law Practice Magazine. Way to go Team – Baby, You’re the Best!
