Tell the American Bar Association Why You Read This Blog

I guarantee you have no idea how much time it takes to maintain this blog.

I have to read all the Tennessee family law opinions issued by the appellate courts, figure out which ones are “blog worthy” (not many), and then draft the posts that are published on this blog.

It is a HUGE time commitment.

I have never asked for anything in return.

Until now.

I want two minutes of your time.

The American Bar Association wants to know why you read this blog.

The comments are limited to 500 characters or less. Sharing your thoughts should take no more than two minutes.

The ABA is seeking input from legal blog readers as to which legal blogs they like and why.

If you enjoy this blog, please take two minutes of your time to tell the ABA why you read this blog, what you enjoy about it, how it benefits you, etc.

You only have until August 16 so please take a moment right now and CLICK HERE to share your thoughts with the ABA.

Thank you. I really appreciate it.

  1. Mr. Herston
    I’m a non legal reader of your blog, I found it when I was going through my divorce. I would be happy to provide feedback to the ABA but I don’t they want to hear from me. I do enjoy your blog very much as many times you help me understand how the higher courts reached their decisions and I real like the way you point out how they contradict themselves on certain ruling. You do a great job. Thanks for doing it.

    1. Jeff, I’m glad you like the blog. I try to make it useful to lawyers and laypeople alike. I don’t think the ABA just wants to hear from lawyers. They’re interested in hearing from readers, whoever they may be. If you have a moment, please tell them what you think.

  2. Dear Mr. Herston,

    I just posted my strong and positive review of your Tennessee Family Law blawg using the ABA link you provided.

    This is also an opportunity for me to send a quick personal note of thanks for your sharing your well-written opinion analyses AND your well-photographed images from East Tennessee.

    Best regards,

  3. Mr. Herston;
    I also just posted my input on the ABA link you provided. In my comments to the ABA, I wrote things I’ve not written to you. But you should know how much I value your postings. I get the daily postings from the Appellate Court. I review (often too quickly) the opinions touching on domestic relations. I always look forward to your analysis because they give me a fresh (sometimes contrary) outlook on the case.

    Thank you for sharing, in a very accessible way, your knowledge. Reading your comments on a case often gives me a “heads-up” on how my opposing counsel will argue when I cite to a case. I know it’s a lot of work. You should know that I appreciate that effort.

    Be well,

    Colleen P. Steele,
    Knoxville Domestic Relations attorney

  4. Done. Outstanding work! Reading your blog keeps me up on all the recent cases and I appreciate your thoughts and insights on the cases. You’ve put Garrett Walton and TAMS to shame. I told you once a while ago how much I liked your blog but I should tell you more often. I’ve been a reader since its inception and it has saved me from embarrassment on more than one occasion.

  5. As a court reporter in East Tennessee since 2003, I write what is said in depositions and court. I’m out of the loop as far as research and strategy. I always have burning questions when I leave the proceeding.

    By reading your blogs, I have a better understanding of the law and why certain strategies are used in legal argument. The more knowledge I have, the better reporter I become.

    Thank you for taking your valuable time to educate and enlighten.

  6. KO,

    just wanted to say thank you for the work that you do put into this blog. I’ve found it very helpful in understanding how the courts interpret the statutes, and how the courts approach issues of divorce. As one who is going through never-ending post-divorce litigation, your work is super helpful.
