Thanks to my wife, Younghee, for helping me to metamorphosize my office — the day after the movers departed last month — into a beautiful oasis for visitors, my staff and me. Our office’s July 22 relocation is recounted here, here and here.
I have appreciated when doctors’ and dentists’ offices offset stark images and smells of needles and alcohol. In that spirit, my office design focuses on a home living room feel rather than as a place where Blackstone (not the magician) spouts nothing but legal commentary from a time when the law talked of women as chattel, and slave ownership as legally enforceable.
Above is a photo of our reception area, through our front doors that include my law firm symbol, a symbol about pursuing victory with an eye towards getting a client’s unbalanced situation back to balance and to offset the often insufficient results from merely balancing on the scales of justice.
